    I didn't think this was really front page news worthy, but wanted to share.

    On Tuesday Google announced that GNow has been given the ability to do MAGIC! Harry Potter magic, of course, to tie into the upcoming movie, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them.

    There are 3 spells that, of course, must be preceded by "OK GOOGLE"
    • Lumos!
    • Nox!
    • Silencio!
    I'm not telling you what they do! :D

    This one is just Spanish for silence. Not sure that qualifies as a magic spell.

    I can't get nox to work by voice. It keeps thinking I'm saying Knox.

    I was able to get Lumos and Nox to work. G now thought it was Knox at first but then changed to Nox after a second or two.

    They worked for me, although Nox was a little stubborn.

    I've heard it all my life, but yeah. It was big news up here when they officially added it to the dictionary.
