Control Dubai’s weather with Google Weather

We always knew they could it.


The conspiracy theory that Google controls the world (and hence, it’s beings) is pretty well known. Why else do you think we are unable to use any other search engine?

Either by glitch then, or to define it’s existence as our immortal overlord, Google has introduced a new mechanic that allows anyone to control the weather of Dubai. For real.

You can change the climate from sunny to cloudy, make it rain and block roads in Sharjah, increase humidity, and even change the speed of wind so the four-wheel drivers can feel the thrill of speed even more.

It’s ridiculously detailed and feature rich, suggesting the mechanic was in works for a long time. It’s not even in ‘Beta’, adding even more fuel to the conspiracy.

To access the weather controls, just search for ‘weather dubai’ in Google.

    That’s a horrendous try for an April Fools joke.
