(Pocket-lint) - Google Assistant - like its rivals Amazon Alexa and Apple's Siri - can not only help you get things done, but it can also entertain you, especially around the various holidays in the year.

The AI is loaded with hilarious responses for all sorts of hidden commands. These are known as "Easter Eggs," an unexpected feature in software. And they range from Google Assistant's deepest, darkest thoughts on life to cool pop culture references.

There are multiple commands you can try, each with several responses. Keep in mind that the holiday ones below might only work around the respective holiday as they are limited-time Easter Eggs.

Here are some of the best Google Assistant commands we could find.
