7) Google MicDrop:
Sick of arguing with your classmates about who is going to write the citations page for your group project? Try Google Mic Drop! Simply hit the mic drop button at the bottom of your email to mute all future replies AND send a gif of a Minion dressed as a queen dropping a mic.
According to Google, they have disabled the feature because users were confused and clicked the button by accident resulting in several people getting fired from their jobs. We have a sinking suspicion though that this might also be part of the prank.
