Google's Santa Tracker gets a Pokemon Go-like game and fresh design
The overall look and feel of Santa Tracker has been given a complete face-lift so that it's easier to navigate through all of the content that's available, with the Santa Village featuring one of the most notable visual changes. There are plenty of simple games to play within the app that serve as great time-killers, and heading to the desktop version of the Santa Tracker will feature unique games of its own.
However, while the updated design certainly is nice, the biggest inclusion is undoubtedly the latest game called "Present Quest." Present Quest features similar functionality to that of Pokemon Go, as it tasks you with heading out into the real world to collect virtual presents and to them drop them off at certain locations. You'll be able to compete for a high score within the game, but if you're like me and live in an area where the snow quickly starts to pile up around this time of year, you might be better off sticking with the other included games that don't require you to venture out into the cold.
Present Quest is Pokemon Go meets Christams.
The fun with Santa Tracker officially starts on December 1st, and new games will be released as the upcoming month progresses. And, as always, you'll be able to track Santa's exact whereabouts on December 24th.
Google's Santa app is available for Android through the Google Play Store or through your mobile/desktop browser.
