Is there any way to disable all future Google's April fools in Gmail (and even better, in all Google services)?

1 Answer 1


No, there isn't. Google has never offered any option to prevent their corporate pranks. Of course, in the past, most have been ones where you actually need to go to a different URL or are something harmless like changing a site theme.

I can pretty much guarantee that they'll never mess with something as important as email ever again. Certainly not after this backlash.

That said, maybe after this most recent debacle they will offer a way to opt-out of future April Fool's jokes. But they don't right now.
