OMD FWD w/c 7th May

Hello and welcome to your weekly FWD. Last Friday (May 4th) in celebration of Star Wars Day, Google gave its Assistant new Star Wars-related powers and London Heathrow changed their departure board to display destinations in a galaxy far, far away.

If that has inspired you to book a holiday, Corona has created an out-of-office GIF generator for when you do! Alternatively if you are a football fan you can watch the FIFA World Cup this summer no matter where you are (including sun loungers) as Twitter has agreed to a live-streaming deal that will bring you all the action from Russia.
