In an apparent leak out of ZDnet, we may have new Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” screenshots to study for the rest of the day. The leak shows an older build of Kit Kat running on a Nexus 7 (2013) tablet, along with a variety of screenshots from different areas inside the new build of our favorite mobile OS compared to Android 4.3. We have a look at the Easter Egg, more icons in the app drawer, the slightly tweaked Clock app, Settings menu, and the new Downloads app. There is a lot to take in, so we’ll continue to update this post as we have more.

Here are the Easter Eggs Built Into Hangouts [Ponies!]


Shortly after Google announced their new unified chat service called Hangouts, users discovered a handful of Easter Eggs embedded deep within. Actually, they aren’t deep at all and can be accessed with a simple command in a chat box on either Google+ or through the Chrome app (no mobile version support here). The whackiness of the Easter Eggs’ ranges from colorful ponies to KONAMI cheat codes, all of which are listed above thanks to Googler Moritz Tolxdorff. To tell you the truth, I thought there might be even more, but this is the entire list.

To flood your box with ponies, pitchforks, or a shy dino, type the commands listed into the text box of a Hangout.

Which is your favorite?

In True Google Fashion, Easter Egg Found in Google Glass

Glass Easter Egg

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that after some digging, a lucky owner of Google Glass has found a well-placed Easter Egg inside the device’s software. After a check through Settings, then a specific number of taps on the track pad, you are greeted by a full panorama of the Google Glass team. And wouldn’t you know it, Mr. Sergey Brin even makes an appearance.  (more…)

AOKP Developers Add In Their Own Jelly Bean Easter Egg Goodies

Oh, those crazy developers. If you have flashed the newest build of AOKP, then just like the official Jelly Bean build from Google, you can find some amusing Easter Egg fun. Under Settings, tap rapidly on “AOKP verison” which will bring up a flashy picture of a majestic unicorn. Long press on the unicorn and boom, tons of floating multi-colored unicorn heads for you to play around with.

Good work, fellas.

Cheers Bryan!

CM10 Easter Egg Plays Off of Jelly Bean’s Quite Nicely

The Jelly Bean Easter Egg that we first unearthed back at Google I/O has quickly become one of our all-time favorites. It’s interactive and a great time waster should you find yourself needing to kill 5 minutes without having to think or blink. Who would have thought that flicking Jelly Beans and wondering what’s up with the random Candy Cane could be so fun?

The CyanogenMod team must share similar feelings, as they decided to spend some extra time in CM10 to customize Jelly Bean’s hidden fun. CID’s head replaces the beans, but the flicking is just as addicting as you would expect it to be. It can be accessed in the same way that you would any other Easter Egg in Android – tap multiple times on the Android build number in your device’s About screen, then long press when you see CID’s face.  (more…)
