To start your search for Waldo, update your Google Maps app on Android or OIS, or go to google.com/maps on your desktop.

When you see Waldo waving at you from the side of the screen, click "play." You can also say, "Hey, Google, Where's Waldo?" if you have Google assistant on your phone, Chromebook or Home device.

Waldo will share his location and then you'll be able win badges whenever you find him and his friends. Once you find the characters, your screen will take you to different places around the world where you can continue the fun search.
