That Time When Instead of Saying ‘April Fool!’ Google Had to Say ‘Sorry!’


Unintentional consequences led Google to pull its April Fools’ prank, Gmail Mic Drop, a few hours after launching it on Friday. The joke let users claim the last word in an email thread by clicking on the “Send + Mic Drop” option. A GIF of a minion from the animated movie Despicable Me — would accompany the reply, and the sender would not receive any further responses to the thread. The “send and mic drop” button, which was located next to the “send” button, replaced the “send and archive” button.
