Add Google to the list of companies that have a Stranger Things season 2 activation.

The device acts as a walkie-talkie—all you have to do is say “Hey Google, talk to Dustin from Stranger Things” over the course of watching the second season. Players are asked questions about the new season, helping the characters progress in the game. Winners eventually get inducted into the Hawkins AV Club.

scroogledDespite rumors to the contrary, Microsoft’s Scroogled campaign is long from over. Earlier today, a number of publications picked up on a comment by Bing Search Director Stefan Weitz who told KQED that the campaign is “about finished.” Now, however, a Microsoft spokesperson has told us that this is not true and that we should “stay tuned for the next chapter.”

Here is the full statement from Microsoft:

“Scroogled will go on as long as Google keeps Scroogling people. We know Google doesn’t like it when the facts come out. Chapter two of the consumer education campaign has shown people care about their privacy. More than 3.5 million people visited scroogled.com, and nearly 115,000 people signed a petition asking Google to stop going through their Gmail. Stay tuned for the next chapter.”
