Google also introduced Olympic themed game
As the Olympics begin in Tokyo, Japan, Google is bringing the theme of celebration to its Chrome browser. The famous dinosaur game that we often see running on the browser without internet can now be played with Olympic color and flag. Google has updated its mini dinosaur game to mark the Olympics.
Google has now changed the game to represent some of the news from the Olympics. The games still start in the old-fashioned theme, but players will be able to see the Olympic torches on their way. Collecting these would turn the sport into one of many Olympic events.
