Google Adds ‘Star Wars’ Pizzazz to Apps & Devices

This debate seems as if it will never end: Light Side V. Dark Side. Google and Star Wars have teamed up to make this debate even more public. Through the use of technology, you can now pick your side and even have your devices show what you have selected.

Announced on Monday, Google will let you ‘Awaken the Force’ per se. All you have to do is visit by logging in with your Google account. After that, the transformation of your Google Apps will begin.

Special experiences have been developed for Android Wear Watches, Google Calendar, Chrome, Chromecast, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Now, Waze and YouTube with added features for fans to discover on their Inbox by Gmail, Google Translate and Google Search.


Google has since then shared a fun clip promoting this new experience.

Also, set to launch on December 2 is that of the Google Cardboard Virtual Reality Experience. This experience will be available on both Android and iOS devices, alongside the Official Star Wars app.

Coming on December 2 is a new virtual reality experience developed along with Google and Verizon. This will feature the first-of-its-kind serialized Google Cardboard Virtual Reality (VR) experience that combines a compelling story and exclusive, never-seen-before content, which ties directly into the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the very latest cutting-edge Virtual Reality technology.

ILMxLAB, a laboratory for immersive entertainment from Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, created the Virtual Reality content for the Google Cardboard VR Experience utilizing the group’s combined expertise in special effects, design and artistry.

Which side of the force will you be selecting?
