If by any chance you have dreamt of attending Hogwarts or wishing you could join Harry Potter’s squad even just for a day, Google may have something that will brighten your day… literally, or at least. Like how the wizards wield their wands, you can now cast a “spell”, just like how they did with your smartphone’s flashlight.

The good news? It’s so easy, even your 80-year old grandma can do it. The bad news? You’ll need to have an Android smartphone.

To cast a spell, all you need to do is say “Ok Google”, and then “Lumos” to turn your phone’s flashlight on, and “Nox” to turn it off. There’s also another command for wannabe wizards, just say “Silencio” to turn your phone into silent mode.
