NEED TO KNOW

'Google Nose' is just one of the companies many online April Fools jokes

Google is winning April Fools' day. Nearly every one of it's brands is punking us in one way or another. Gmail has gone blue, YouTube is shutting down, Google Maps will now lead you to treasure -- even their super techy/boring infrastructure projects like Google fiber are getting in on the act.

But they're far from alone in their appreciation for an online gag on April Fools'... we've rounded up a few for you, and will keep updating this list as new ones pop up! If you see one, let us know in the comments... we'll give you credit!

  • YouTube is shutting down?
