I am sure many of us have already tried the Dinosaur game in Chrome that comes up when our internet connection snaps.

So, next time you find yourself without an internet connection, you can kill time by playing a "cloud" game that's hidden in the Google App.

Here's everything to know.

No internet? Well, let's us play the "cloud" game

Having no internet is the only way to try Google's "cloud" game. So, instead of waiting for that oh-snap! no internet moment, you can manually turn off Wi-Fi/mobile data to try it out.

Once offline, open the Google App or widget and perform any search. You'll see an animated cloud icon. Simply click on it to go full screen and play the "cloud" game.

Gameplay

Tap, tap, tap to save the happy cloud

The gameplay is fairly simple and fun. As the cloud, you simply have to tap on the screen to float along through the sky, saving yourself from obstacles like evil birds and thunder clouds.

Notably, the app doesn't support long press, so you have to continuously tap to stay alive.

Here's a free tip for you: The umbrella can avoid a few collisions.
