In case you weren't aware, tomorrow is National Mario Day. And one big one, for Nintendo anyway, is Mario Day, Mar. 10 (get it?), which it generally celebrates with gags and shout-outs.

"According to Google, first you'll need to update your app then click on the yellow "?" icon on the bottom right of the Google Maps app to enable Mario Time. Mario will only be available inside Maps for the next week, so take advantage of this fun feature while you can.

What to know about Women's Day
The companies are expected to identify challenges facing women in the workplace and share recommendations about how to solve them. This year's theme is: " Time is Now: Rural and Urban Activists Transforming Women's Lives ".

The Mario feature will begin rolling out today - so make sure you've got you've got the latest version of Google Maps installed if you want to try it out. Get it? It is on March 10, as the abbreviation looks like the word "Mario". And to mark the occasion, Google has partnered with Mario's maker Nintendo to bring the character to Google Maps for an entire week. Google suggests that you avoid throwing bananas or red shells at other drivers on the road.

Mobile app users on iOS and Android are already seeing a pop-up giving them the option to use Mario the position marker, replacing the usual compass arrow.

Android P could turn your smartphone into a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse
In the next major Android OS update, Google has added the ability to use your Android smartphone as a wireless mouse or keyboard. Google is preparing to launch the first developer preview of the next version of Android, now codenamed Android P.

You can also choose to screenshot your route and share it to @GoogleMaps on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #MarioMaps, Google suggests. With it installed, you'll be presented with a? block icon next to the Start button when looking up directions. In fact, in 2014, Google and the Pokémon Company (which Nintendo jointly owns) teamed up for an April Fools joke that put Pokémon all over the map.
