You can now cast Harry Potter spells from your phone

If you have an Android phone, get ready to cast a few of Harry Potter’s spells.

Google partnered up with the next Harry Pottery flick, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” and announced that fans can now cast three spells straight from their phones.

Say, “OK Google, Lumos!” to turn the phone’s flashlight on. To turn the flashlight off, say “OK Google, Nox!”

“Silencio!” will magically turn off your phone’s ringer and notifications.

There’s no word yet if Google will add any more spells to its repertoire, but it sure is a cool way to show off your Potter skills at your next party.
