Have you ever wondered what a new car smells like without actually smelling it in person?
Google Nose Beta, an advanced innovation from the search engine giants, aims to allow its users to experience different smells virtually.
According to the company Google Nose Beta “Uses new and existing technologies to deliver the sharpest olfactory experience available.”
But is Google Nose real? let us tell you!
What is Google Nose Beta and how does it work?
Google Nose Beta was introduced as a new dimension to its search engine that allows users to search for different smells.
It was first launched in 2013 and described as “the flagship olfactory knowledge feature that allows users to search for smells”.
The beta scents are designed to “seamlessly connect scent with search.” This means that every time you search its database, your screen would give off a specific scent.

Is Google Nose real?
Before you get your hopes up, let us tell you that Google Nose is fake.
As plausible as the idea of an artificial nose seems, the search engine giant introduced the much-touted feature on April 1 years ago, playing an elaborate prank on all of us.
It amuses many to this day as everyone wants to experience fragrances through their screen.
Unfortunately, that’s not possible, at least not yet.
The prank never gets old
Google Nose and its supposed super features are once again being discussed on social media as people continue to fall for the old joke.
This has become a favorite among teachers as the online classroom setup is tailor-made to pull this prank.
Sharing her students’ reaction to the prank, one Twitter user wrote:” Pranked our FDKs with Google Nose Beta this morning and had so much fun smelling through our screens! Lots of great reactions to the stinky wet dog smell!”
“We also launched ‘Google Nose Beta’ and it was pretty fun! E said, “Well I guess I can’t smell it because I don’t really have a good sense of smell.” wrote another teacher.
A Twitter user who fell victim to the famous joke wrote: “I’ll never forget the April Fool’s joke when I fell for the Google Nose prank.”
