Earlier today, the Android N Developer Preview 5 dropped and brought with it a new Easter Egg, if you can call it that. At first glance, we brushed it off as being nothing more than a Nougat colored “N” set atop an emoji line-up that evoked Hodor and his name origin.

Oh, but it appears to be much deeper than that. There may be Pokemon GO-inspired happenings here. (more…)

Once you have Android 5.0 “Lollipop” up and running on your Nexus 5, you need to jump through to the About screen and check out the newest Easter Egg. It’s a Flappy Bird clone. Not even kidding – you can play Flappy Bugdroid as much as you want.
Google loves Easter Eggs, and users have been sending in tips about them for quite a while. For example, instead of saying, “Ok Google,” you can say “Ok computer” or “Ok Jarvis.” Little things like that are nice, but this newly discovered one is quite funny. (more…)
A reader of ours was cruising through the systemui folder after decompiling a Kit Kat ROM this morning to check out the latest Easter Egg and found all of the .png files that make up the beautifully colored Android collage pictured above. The collage itself isn’t new, but some of the pictures clearly show Google’s well-documented sense of humor. They can be seen in the actual Easter Egg, assuming you look closely enough. (more…)
