Thanks to Google Now and Google’s industry-leading search engine, of course, the Google search app is a must-have for every smartphone and tablet owner. On the Google Now side of things, the app does a tremendous job of giving you important information before you can even think to ask. Then Google’s standard search features are ready to help answer all of your remaining questions.

Of course, Google is also known to have a little fun from time to time, and a new Easter egg in the company’s search app will definitely put a smile on your face.

FROM EARLIER: Google Now just got much better thanks to a killer Google app you’ve never heard of

Game of Thrones fans still have a painfully long wait before the next season of HBO’s smash hit airs, though a new Game of Thrones video game might help tide them over later this year. Even before the game is released, however, a new Easter egg in Google’s search app will let you pay homage to one of D. B. Weiss’s most beloved characters.

After saying “OK Google” or tapping the microphone icon in the search box within Google’s app, try saying “Hodor.” You’ll never guess what the app’s response will be.
