Buzz surrounding the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” film is in full force.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter details that Google has made the “Star Wars” experience more interactive by recruiting users to become a Jedi or a Sith.
THR reports that the incorporation of “Star Wars” will affect Google products such as Chrome, Gmail, Google Maps and YouTube, to name a few.
Furthermore, IGN reports that Google will tailor your interface according to the side you have chosen.
For instance, if a user decided to be a Jedi, that user therefore belongs to the light side. If the user chose to be a Sith, then he/she belongs to the dark side.
Google then will match the user’s interface to the side he or she has chosen, IGN reports.
According to the website, features that Google will add in this “awakening the force” project will involve changing the position marker in Google Maps into a TIE fighter or an X-Wing.
Significant dates in the “Star Wars” franchise will also be added to Google Calendar, IGN reports.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the “Star Wars”-related changes will take effect on Chromebook, Mac and Windows computers, and Android and iOS phones and tablets.
SMH also reports that users can use the “Star Wars” app changes until next year or when users decide to manually turn it off.
Time provides a basic instruction on how to unlock the mentioned “Star Wars” Easter Eggs on Google.
First, Time suggests that a user should be logged in to his/her Google Chrome Browser. Second, the user can then navigate to google.com/StarWars where he/she can choose a side.
Finally, once the user picks to become a Jedi or a Sith, links to other apps that support the new “Star Wars” tool will be provided.
“Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” will hit theaters on December 18.
