The Google Now easter eggs just keep coming. This time, Google takes a SciFi approach to their fun and games. If you get into Google Now and ask it “When am I?”, the result may surprise you. Google Now really has this contextual info thing down.
This week at Google I/O the Mountain View company released their new and improved Hangouts, which aims to replace Google+ Hangouts, Google Talk, and other messaging services. As usual, Google's loaded the app full of Easter Eggs, and as expected they are quite fun. Be careful though, you could irritate friends and family quite fast with all these little tricks.
Today the always fun folks from Google just updated the official Google I/O 2013 website. They've published the rest of the details on Google I/O like the dates and times, and stuff we already knew. Then tossed in tons of Google Easter Eggs. The entire site is actually interactive, which I completely missed after heading there when we received our press invite.
Just in case you all haven't had enough of the famous Harlem Shake yet, our good friends at Google decided to make it fun for everyone. Yup, in the usual and amazing Google fashion we have another Easter egg for you all to try. If you don't know what those are we suggest you Google "Google Easter Egg" and enjoy all the tricks.
Just like Gingerbread, Honeycomb, and Ice Cream Sandwich before it Google has another "Easter Egg" hidden inside of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Most people know the trick already and if not we'll share the details below. We saw this last week and after some thought have finally realized what Google could be hinting at -- and that is a Christmas full of Nexus gifts.
Being the fun-loving world domination corporation that they are, Google likes to spread around Easter eggs in almost every website or piece of software they develop. The system version Easter eggs are some of Android's most famous, like Ice Cream Sandwich's NyanDroid. So it is with Chrome for Android, Google's attempt at synchronizing its desktop, mobile and stand-alone browser strategies. Two Easter eggs have been found in the mobile browser thus far, both intended to show off Chrome's impressive memory management.
What's that? Ice Cream flavored Nyan Cat isn't nearly enough geeky madness for you? You crave more functionally useless but smile-inducing hidden gems in Ice Cream Sandwich? Then feast your eyes on "Rocket Launcher", a Star Trek-style starfield full of flying app icons that lives just below the updated ICS launcher.
Every new version of Android gets its own special Ester egg, activated by rapidly tapping on the version number in the About Phone section of the settings menu. Gingerbread got some Android zombie art. Honeycomb got the bumblebee Android. And Ice Cream Sandwich gets... a pop-tart robot?
