Is there any movie lover who hasn’t seen the famous harry potter series? If you spend your time daydreaming about attending Hogwarts or wishing you could join Harry Potter’s squad, Google may have something that will brighten your day: literally. You can now cast a “spell” — the same way wizards and witches in Potter’s world wield their wands — to turn your smartphone’s flashlight on and off.
The good news? It’s so easy even muggles(Persons who don’t have the magical ability) can do it. The bad news? You have to have an Android phone. so be ready for Harry Potter Spells.
To cast a spell, users can say “Ok Google,” and then “Lumos” to turn the phone’s flashlight on, or “Nox” to turn the flashlight off. Wannabe wizards can also use the command “Silencio” to silence the phone’s ringer and notifications.
If you’re obsessed with the Harry Potter franchise like me, you’re probably looking forward to the release of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.
This magical update is part of a promotion with Warner Bros. Pictures for the upcoming film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which debuts Nov. 18 in theatres in the United States. The film is set in the same world created by author J.K. Rowling for the “Harry Potter” books and movies, but the storyline occurs decades before Harry Potter spells begins his wizarding adventures. The plot revolves around the character Newt Scamander, a so-called magic zoologist in New York in the 1920s.
Android owners can explore Scamander’s world with Google Street View, which features scenes from New York in 1926 as they appear in the film, with comparisons to how these spots look today. Fans of “Fantastic Beasts” can even visit specific locations from the movie, according to Google.
And using the company’s new virtual-reality headset, dubbed Daydream View, users will be able to wave a wand to explore Scamander’s world in virtual reality further and help the intrepid magic zoologist locate his escaped beasts. DayDream View is currently available for pre-order and is slated to be available on Nov. 10.
