Google’s Nat and Lo walk us through the history of Android Easter eggs
By now we should all be aware of Android Easter eggs, the cute little treats Google leaves inside all recent Android devices’ settings menus for our viewing pleasure. They’re accessible by tapping numerous times on the Android version number under the About section. These have been around since Android 2.3 Gingerbread, when a certain Googler received a painting of a Bugdroid next to a zombified gingerbread man and thought it was a good idea to hide it somewhere within the platform. Ever since that release, Google has included different Easter eggs for every major release of Android.
Most recently, Android 5.0 Lollipop featured a full game for its Easter egg, as a nod towards the most famous mobile title that released last year, Flappy Bird. This was possibly the most positively received Easter egg Google has ever released, so it’s no surprise to see it return for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Easter egg.
To get a better look at the history of the Android Easter egg, Google’s Nat and Lo have created a short video that walks us through every step of the way. You can find the video attached below:
What’s your favorite Android Easter egg? Is it Lollipop’s Flappy Bird clone, or are you more a fan of Jelly Bean’s “BeanFlinger” game?
