It’s December 24th – Christmas Eve.
That means that as you read this, Santa Claus is already busy loading his sleigh with the latest gadgets, toys, treats and a few lumps of coal (for the unlucky few on the naughty list).
Thankfully, with the wonders of modern technology there are plenty of ways to keep an eye on his progress as he speeds around the world tonight.
Like a pricey courier service – or an Uber driver – you are able to track the progress on a map, as your presents make their way across the globe towards your chimney.
So, if want to know when your presents are about to be delivered – here is how to use the Google Santa Tracker to track Santa.
Google Santa Tracker
Android – Online • Free
Google‘s Santa tracker is back for another year of festive fun.
The online Christmas celebration includes games such as Santa Selfie, videos and the all-important live Santa tracker, which features Google Maps’ technology.
There’s also an app for tracking the sleigh from your smartphone.
Google has also kitted out its clever virtual assistant with the smarts to track the festive fellow itself.
Simply ask the Google Assistant “Where’s Santa?” and the talkative assistant lets you know what he’s up to at that very moment.
You can also entertain yourself by asking Google Assistant for holiday-themed jokes.
Sadly, Google’s app is only available on Android phones so iPhone fans will have to stick to the website.
“On Christmas Eve we’ll be proudly showcasing a Santa’s dashboard, the technology that powers his sleigh during his around-the-world journey,” Said Google.
“We’ve received this special preview from one of Santa’s many developer elves, who are hard at work in the North Pole helping Santa prepare for his big day.”
