Many people love Android because smartphones work well, have many features, and allow you to do what many other gadgets do not allow. Someone appreciates Android for the design of the devices on which this operating system is installed. And someone is more interested in easter eggs that are installed on new versions of this operating system. Please note, the world's most widespread operating system. In this article, we will discuss all Easter eggs that have been in more than 10 years of existence Android. Someone will experience a feeling of nostalgia, and someone will just look at how it was and compare with what we have now. Frankly, I liked it more before. I think you too.
We call it the easter egg. In English, this is called an 'Easter egg'. All due to the fact that one has to look for it.
How to find Easter eggs in Android
Google has been hiding so-called Easter eggs for many years now in different versions of its operating system Android. Our beloved OS brought surprises with every iteration. Therefore, the work of specialists is worth remembering.
In order to open the Easter egg, you need to go to the smartphone settings, select the “About phone” item, and then often touch the field with the version Android several times. Done. Now you can have fun.
Easter egg Android 10
The first to rate Easter eggs Android 10 were the owners of Google Pixel, because they were the first to install this version on their smartphones. Other brands, however, also pulled up quickly enough and rolled out their updates.
Despite the name change, Android 10 did not give up the Easter egg. At first it seems that the found surprise lacks interactivity, but it is there and it is not just a static picture. You just need to pull one of the numbers and everything will become clear. They can be moved anywhere on the screen, just like the word ”Android”. If you press the word Android several times after you collect the 'Q' from the numbers (to spin the numbers, you need to hold your finger on them), the game will open. It will be a Japanese crossword puzzle. The numbers are generated anew each time – you can play for a long time.
You can not just move the numbers, but also open an additional game.
Android 9.0 Pie
Android 9.0 Pie was released by Google in October 2018 along with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Many smartphones still run this OS version.
A bit hypnotic.
There is something interesting hidden in this version of the Easter egg. In addition to displaying the Android Pie logo with hypnotic flowers and slow-moving circles, you can move the picture itself. You can pinch or spread your fingers and get the effect of an infinite increase or decrease.
Android 8.0 Oreo
When the first version Android 8.0 was released for developers, one of the first things that everyone started checking was the presence of an Easter egg. Initially it was the same as in Android 7.0 Nougat, but in the fourth beta version everything changed and the firmware got its own easter egg.
The Easter egg was a blue screen with a black octopus floating in a circle. It is to the Easter egg that the egg-shaped head of the octopus refers. If you touch this head and move your finger across the screen, then the whole octopus will move behind it.
The same octopus.
Perhaps a hint of the eighth version Android is that this animal has eight legs. Or tentacles. The rest of the easter egg is quite passable.
Android 7.0 Nougat
In Android 7.0, your mission after the opening of the Easter egg is to attract the cats to eat from the plate you give them. In fact, this is not very logical and not everyone understood what to do and what the essence of the Easter egg was.
The first part of the Easter egg.
It is also not as easy to activate it as it was in many other cases. First, you need to start the Easter egg itself by tapping the version Android in the smartphone settings several times. Then wait until a small smiley in the form of a cat appears under the letter “N”. Next, you will need to pull out the notification curtain from the top of the screen by sliding your finger twice from the top of the screen.
And then we choose food.
When the notification curtain appears, it will not have the usual appearance, but there will be a “Bowl” item. Click on it, select the type of food you want to feed the cat in the window that opens, and that's it, it's done. Now you will feed the virtual cat.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Easter egg of the sixth version Android I liked the most. It was an endless game in the spirit of the famous Flappy Bird. At first, she annoyed me with the fact that nothing worked, but then, if you get your hands on it, it starts to turn out very well.
Easter egg Android 6.
The game was difficult, but it was much more interesting than just animated Easter eggs. To get to the marshmallow, you had to guide the robot between obstacles. By touching the screen, you could throw it up. The background moved and, throwing this robot, it was necessary to hit the gaps. That's the whole point, but it was interesting. Again, if you overcome the first stage, when you could not pass 1-2 turns and wanted to quit.
Android 5.0 Lollipop
It is not worth dwelling on this version of the Easter egg in detail. If we were considering the firmware not from new to old, but on the contrary, then it would not be worthwhile to dwell on version Android 6.0. It's just that the games in them are almost the same and differ only in the background.
Easter egg Android 5.
Both of these games were inspired by the same Flappy Bird that made more than one user send their smartphone to the wall. It was too nasty if you couldn't get through it.
Android 4.4 KitKat
Easter Egg Android 4.4 KitKat pays homage to all past versions Android. After launch, a rotating letter “K” appeared on the screen, which could be pressed and held to open the logo Android with the writing in the style of the logo of the KitKat chocolate, after which the OS version is named.
Easter egg Android 4.4
When I tapped and held this logo, the chocolate bar-style logos of previous OS versions appeared on the screen.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Devices running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean greets you with the famous candy bean. First, one appears, but if you click on it, they will appear all over the screen and you can throw and mix in every possible way.
Easter egg Android 4.1
It's all! There is nothing more in this firmware Easter egg. It starts in the same way as all the others – with a few taps according to the operating system version in the phone settings.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
If you stumbled upon an insanely wild fantasy with a cat Nyan Cat, which runs across the sky, leaving a trail of a rainbow, you will probably understand what the Easter egg is made for in version Android 4.0.
The green robot in this firmware will also move across the sky. It looks a little strange, but then, in the wake of popularity, the developers made just such an Easter egg.
The robot was as pixelated as eight-bit like a cat. Only in the sky did he move, flying into space. This was the main difference.
Android 3.0 Honeycomb's
Easter egg version Android 3.0 Honeycomb's featured the famous robot symbolizing the operating system in the form of some kind of gloomy bee. Follow the same steps as mentioned above to activate it and you will see that it is a neon bee. A square box with the word 'REZZZZZ' will appear under the bee's sting.
Easter egg Android 3
In the Tron universe, of which the bee appears to be a part, 'Rezzing' is the term used to create a person or object on the play grid. No one really knows why Google did just that. But that's why she's an Easter egg.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
There is a feeling that whoever claimed the splash screen Android 2.3 has revisited the horror movies. Therefore, the Easter egg has a somewhat scary look. It features a hand-drawn image of a demonic, bow-tie, yellow-eyed gingerbread man surrounded by zombies. Next to the gingerbread man stands confused Android
Easter egg Android 2.3
This first Easter egg is not only unsettling but strikingly different from Google's later attempts. As they say, it didn't go.
Easter egg Android 11
It is too early to say what kind of Easter eggs will be in the final version Android 11, but many are already interested. I would like it to be unusual and complex. Perhaps some kind of game or just a mystery. It's not very interesting to just open it and stare at the picture. I would like to have something to smash my head over.
It is even better that it be made so that the answer to its “disclosure” is not obvious. So that you have to sit yourself and smash your head, what should be done with the logo or something else. So that a search on the Internet does not give an answer and random behavior is generated for each. Or the path that you have to go to see the result. Then it will be really interesting.
