Google has partnered with Nintendo to make a limited time update for Google Maps in honor of Mario Day. Starting on March 10th, 2018 Google Maps will have Mario in his go-cart as the car icon when you search for directions once you update to the latest version. This includes MarioKart game sounds such as coin collection and Mario talking that Google Maps will play as you navigate to your destination. Once the new update for the Google Maps app is downloaded, you will see an Icon called Mario Time and can click Lets-A-Go whenever you plug in a destination to activate this feature. This feature will unfortunately only last for the week Mario Day falls on and will be gone soon after, so be sure to go on an adventure with Mario before time runs out and drive safe!
