Google gives you your daily trivia fix

Screen grab from
Using Google is normally considered cheating when playing trivia games. But the search engine announced a new supplement to your daily crossword/Sudoku/word jumble that will test your knowledge and your search skills.

A Google a Day will offer a trivia tidbit every day in a special version of Google that prevents users from seeing spoilers.

The trivia questions will get harder as the week goes on, the same as traditional puzzle games. The game will also be published on weekdays above the New York Times’ crossword puzzle. The previous day’s answer will also be printed each day.

Users can also find the answer to a question by clicking on the “Show answer” link on Google’s site.

Trivia questions have so far run the gamut from science to history to architecture.

Will you add Google’s trivia question to your daily routine?
