There’s a weird bug with Google services that software developer Paul Kafasis has been tracking.

When using Google Now or having Google Translate speak aloud, the phrase "he now praises the iPad" is spoken by Google.

To get it to work with Google Translate, if you add "at an end with" to anything you type in, you will hear what you typed in, and then "at an end, he now praises the iPad."

For instance, if you write, "Kevin walks at an end with," Google says, "Kevin walks at an end, he now praises the iPad."

Head over to Google Translate to test it yourself. It’s very weird!

The bug also works when asking Google Now, "What is a Giraffe?", it will finish the description with "he now praises the iPad".

In case you aren’t familiar with Google Now, the Siri-like assistant works by answering verbal questions with relevant search results.

Kafasis explains the issue further:

This bug is thus stating that when the app is asked to define the precise nature of a giraffe, a completely random phrase is tossed into the mix. That’s sure to rank near the top of any list of “most bizarre bugs”, and it’s likely to be ignored altogether due to its sheer preposterousness.

The bug was reported almost three months ago but Google has yet to acknowledge or correct the error.

Check this one out soon because it may not be around for long.
