With NORAD aligning itself with Bing, Google has announced a new way to track Santa, using the Google Santa Tracker. Google Maps engineers have built a new route algorithm to chart Santa’s journey around the world on Christmas Eve.
Apart from offering Santa’s dashboard on the Google Tracker website, Google has also introduced a Chrome extension and an Android app to help you track Santa on your mobile devices.
Our friendly elves have also invited you to explore Santa’s village while Santa gets ready for his journey. So go ahead and explore his village, you might just find some fun activities and meet some interesting elves, says Google.
You can follow Santa on Google Maps and Google Earth, and get his statistics, starting at 2:00 a.m. PST Christmas Eve.
The Google Santa Tracker website will launch on December 24 2013, but the countdown to the journey has already started.
