For April Fool’s Day this year, Google has teamed up with Wally, who will be sharing his location with Maps users all week.

To see where he is you’ll need to use the latest version of the Google Maps app on your phone (update that now!), or Google Map’s desktop version.

To start your search for Wally, tap his face when you see him waving from the side of the screen. When you do, you’ll have the opportunity to search for the iconic character place all over the world.

They’re also passing out badges for finding Wally and his friends (Woof — but all you can see his is tail, Wenda, Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw are all making appearances in the game).

Google is slowly rolling out the desktop version, so it if doesn’t work now, try again in a few hours.
