To help you kick off your FIFA World Cup™ watch-a-thon, Google has everything you need to keep track of what’s happening on and off the pitch. Here’s how Google can help you enjoy your football fan experience this year:

Stay in the know with Search

During the FIFA World Cup, you’ll find a new experience for exploring group tables, stats and trending players so you can keep track of the tournament, right on Search. Within 30 minutes of the end of each game, you’ll find video recaps from select broadcasters featuring goals and highlights of major match moments.
World Cup Search on Google

For each match, you can tap to watch live or follow along with score updates on your phone. You’ll also find a detailed timeline with updates including in-game moments, live images, stats, tweets and more. 

World Cup Timeline on Search

An example of the timeline you'll see once this year's tournament begins.

To keep track of all the matches, even when you’re not searching, you can pin real-time scores on your Android phone screen from Search on mobile browsers or from the Android Google App. Find the match you’re looking for, tap and drag to pin the match anywhere on your screen.

You can also get in on the action before kick-off by diving into line-ups, news and winning probabilities, which will update once the match gets going. Local broadcasters and national teams will share the latest highlights and updates via Posts on Google.

If your country is competing in the tournament, keep an eye out for a Google Doodlefrom a local artist. Football fans in select countries will also have a chance to check out the Doodles, and they will all be available as they are unveiled at

Assistant with the assist

Keep your eyes on the match and ask your Google Assistant for updates on all the World Cup action. If you want to find out who won the match between Germany and Mexico, which players have scored the most goals in this year’s quest for the Golden Boot, or how many FIFA World Cups Brazil has won, just say “Hey Google” and ask away! You’ll also get fun BTW (by the way) stats for some of your questions, so keep your ears open.

Follow along with Google News

Stay on the ball with all the FIFA World Cup action as it happens with a dedicated World Cup Tracker on your Google News app on Android.  The tracker will include a special “spotlight” feature that provides an easy way to visualize live scores, highlights, results, and schedules all in one place.
