List of Google Easter eggs

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Pac-Man related interactive Google Doodle from 2010 will be shown to users searching for "google pacman" or "play pacman".

The American technology company Google has added Easter eggs into many of its products and services, such as Google Search, YouTube, and Android since the 2000's.[1][2]

Easter eggs are hidden features or messages that not many people know about, inside jokes, and cultural references inserted into media. They are often well hidden, so that users find it gratifying when they discover them, helping form bonds between their creators and finders. They are mostly found in video games, yet Google does make their own. Google's employees are encouraged to use 20% of their time for projects of personal interest, and Easter eggs are sometimes created during this. Google avoids adding Easter eggs to popular search pages, as they do not want to negatively impact usability.[3][4]

While unofficial and not maintained by Google themselves, elgooG contains all Google easter eggs, whether or not they have been discontinued by Google.

Google birthday surprise spinner[edit]

Searching for "google birthday surprise spinner( see it )" will result in a wheel that spins to one of a selection of playable Google Doodles, tools (see above) and games. Whichever is randomly selected may be opened, or the wheel may be spun again. It was added in celebration of Google's 19th birthday.[106]


In late 2011 Google added a graphical calculator to search results,[132][133] using natural language processing to determine that search results might be mathematical in nature.[134][135] Woven into this feature are several, not entirely academic, results which might be considered Easter eggs.[136]

A Google web search for:

The result of multiple Easter eggs may be calculated; for example: "the number of horns on a unicorn plus the answer to life the universe and everything( see it )" will return "43".[137]

Ahead of Pi Day 2021, Google added an Easter egg game to the calculator tool which tested players' knowledge and memory of Pi.[140]

Image search[edit]

  • A Google image search for "atari breakout" or just "breakout" would start a game of Breakout, using the gallery of image results as bricks. Once the bricks were destroyed, a random phrase was automatically searched, the player got an extra ball, and the game restarted.[29] The Easter egg was added in 2013 in celebration of the 37th anniversary of the original Atari game. As of May 2020 the game is no longer embedded on Google's Image Search.[141]

Google Maps and Google Earth[edit]


Fictional places[edit]

Video games[edit]

  • For April Fools' Day 2015, in certain areas in Google Maps, there was a button which started a game of Pac-Man, controlled by arrow keys and using the roads as paths for Pac-Man to travel along.[153]
    • A similar feature was brought back for April Fools' Day 2017, allowing users to play a version of Ms. Pac-Man upon clicking the icon on the Google Maps webpage or mobile app.[154]
  • On Mario Day (March 10[155]) 2018, Google and Nintendo had partnered up to bring Mario into Google Maps mobile app worldwide for a week. A yellow icon with a question mark would show up at the bottom of the directions page, next to the start navigation button. Tapping on the icon would allow the user to have Mario and his kart as the navigation arrow. Tapping the icon 100 times would activate a 1-UP sound like in Nintendo's games.[156]


  • With the release of Google Earth 5, the Mars feature allowed users to speak to a primitive ELIZA clone on the planet, by searching for "Meliza".[157]
  • On July 20, 2005, the 36th anniversary of the first human landing on the Moon, Google debuted a version of Google Maps that included a small segment of the surface of the Moon. It is based entirely on NASA images and includes only a very limited region. Panning causes the map to tile. Zooming to the closest level used to show that the Moon was made of cheese.[158] The map also gives the locations of all Moon landings, and the Google Moon FAQ humorously mentions a connection to the Google Copernicus hoax, which Google claimed to be developing. Supposedly, by 2069, Google Local will support all lunar businesses and addresses.[158]

Google Translate[edit]

  • On November 29, 2010, Reddit user "harrichr" posted details of "how to make Google beatbox for you!" and soon after, Robert Quigley reported the discovery in an article on "geekosystem.com" (now The Mary Sue), stating that he was "Not sure if this falls in the category of Easter Egg or clever manipulation" and that although he had "No idea why", it transpired that using Google Translate to translate nonsense text of all consonants from German to German and clicking Listen would result in machine generated speech that sounded like beatboxing. As time went on, redditors and other interested parties experimented with translation combinations, posting their results on sites including Hacker News where reader "iamdave" is reported to have posted "a pretty comprehensive Google Translate beatboxing guide".[177][178] Three years later Time magazine published an article indicating that Google had acknowledged the existence of this "feature" with an Easter egg "Beatbox" tooltip when hovering over the "speaker icon" button after setting everything up to the aforementioned specification.[179]
  • In January 2018, a Reddit user posted a discovery that when using Google Translate to translate the Funniest Joke in the World ("Wenn ist das Nunstück git und Slotermeyer? Ja! Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput!") from German to English, the result was "[FATAL ERROR]".[180]
  • Past August 27, 2023, translating "happy birthday" and pressing enter, will rain Google-colored confetti, on the occasion of Google's 25th birthday.[181]

Google subpages[edit]

The teapot found at Google's 418 error page
  • ( see it )When Ken Perlin visited Google February 2000, Sergey Brin asked him for a version of an interactive jumping heart character he'd created as a Java applet to be put on the Google site for Valentine's Day. "www.google.com/heart" will redirect to an archived page which is a preservation of the old, but still functional, Google interface, complete with the Valentine's heart and a banner that states "This site is an old friend from Google's past, kept in its original form. Enjoy!"[186][self-published source?]
  • "www.google.com/humans.txt( see it )" is a simple plain text file serving to remind its readers that Google is created by a large team of humans using many technologies. It asks for interested readers to visit their careers page.[187]
  • "www.google.com/killer-robots.txt" was a plain text file in robots.txt format that instructed The Terminator not to kill the company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, but has since been removed.[188]
  • "www.google.com/teapot( see it )" states, "418. I'm a teapot. The requested entity body is short and stout. Tip me over and pour me out." Clicking on the picture of the teapot or tilting the mobile device will result in an animation of it pouring tea into a teacup. The web page is a reference to the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol.[189]


  • Since the version 2.3 (Gingerbread) of Google's Android operating system an Easter egg has been hidden. The Easter egg can be accessed through the "Settings" application, in the "About phone" section, by repeatedly tapping the "Android version" section. The animation is different in every version of the OS.[190]
    • In 2.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) there is a painting of an Android next to a zombie gingerbread man, surrounded by zombies using cellphones.[191]
    • In 3.0 – 3.2.6 (Honeycomb) there is a blue honeybee. Below it, there is the text "REZZZZZZZ..." as a reference to Tron: Legacy.[192]
    • In 4.0 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) there is pixel art of an ice cream sandwich android. Long-pressing it will result in many ice cream sandwich androids flying across the screen, dubbed the "nyan droid" as they are a tribute to Nyan Cat.[192]
    • In 4.1 – 4.3.1 (Jelly Bean) a red jelly bean appears, which if pressed will show its face along with the OS version. If this jelly bean is then long-pressed, an interactive jelly bean mini-game will appear. This is where one can fling the jelly beans around.[192] In 4.2 and above, another minor Easter egg is included: going to System > About Phone and continuously tapping the Build number section results in a notification stating "You are now a developer!", which enables the Developer Options screen.[193]
    • In 4.4 (KitKat) a rotating letter "K" appears, which if continually tapped turns into the text "Android" in the styling of a KitKat logo. If the Android logo is then long-pressed or twisted with two fingers a tile interface, known as "a daydream" called "Dessert Case", loads with icons from all previous versions of Android. It appears to be a mock of the Windows Phone interface.[194]
    • In 5.x (Lollipop) and 6.x (Marshmallow), a colored circle appears (or a circle with a stylized M inside in Marshmallow). If continuously tapped, it will turn into a lollipop with the text lollipop inside (or the M changes into a marshmallow in 6.x). Tapping the circle changes the color. When long-pressed, a game of Flappy Bird starts with the Android mascot instead. In Marshmallow, tapping the plus sign adds extra players (up to five), which can be controlled by the user or other players.[195][196]
    • In 7.0 (Nougat), an "N" appears, which will enable another Easter egg if tapped. This Easter egg, titled "Android Neko" as a reference to the cat collecting mobile game Neko Atsume, can be accessed from the Quick Settings menu, and allows the user to create virtual treats, which will eventually attract kittens. The kittens can be viewed in a gallery-style screen. Additionally, long-pressing on the aforementioned "N" repeatedly will alternate between displaying the no symbol and the cat face emojis, respectively toggling the Easter egg on and off. "No" and "cat" is a mondegreen for "nougat".[197]
    • In 8.0 (Oreo), instead of the normal way of going to the Easter egg, heading to System > About Phone and tapping on the Android version repeatedly will launch the Easter egg. An orange circle appears, representing an "O" for Oreo. Long pressing on the center will open a blue screen representing a sea with an octopus floating around. The "O" in octopus represents Oreo while the eight legs on the octopus represent the version (8.0). The octopus can be moved by dragging the head around.[198]
    • In 9.0 (Pie), the Easter egg is found by going to System > About Phone > Android version and then tapping three times on the Android version on the next screen. A white, extended "P" will then appear, usually with concentric colored circles disappearing into the "P". Each time the Easter egg is invoked, it displays different colors. The animation can be pinched to zoom.[199]
    • In 10.0, the text "android 10" will appear, where each of the texts "android", "1", and "0" can be moved and rotated. Rotating "1" and merging with the digit "0" will result in the "android Q" text. In this state, tapping the "Q" several times will reveal a Nonogram game, where the resulting pictures are various icons of Android.[201]
    • In 11.0, a dial will show up. It can only go up to 10. If a user turn it to the max three times, it will go up to 11. After this is done, a virtual cat Easter egg is unlocked. This one is also called "Android Neko", much like the Easter egg in Nougat releases.[202]
    • In 12.0 and 13.0, a clock will show up. Setting it to the 12 o'clock position (or setting it to the 13 o'clock position in 13.0) will show many circles with the colors of Material You, resembling an Ishihara color test plate. This Easter egg may trigger Trypophobia in some users, as the spots are close together. After opening the Easter egg, a widget will be added to the list of available widget which, when tapped on, shows all the colours in the Material You colour palette and tapping on one will open the share menu with details about the colour.[203] In 13.0, If you click on many circles, you will see different emojis.[204]
    • In 14.0, the "Upside Down Cake" logo will pop up. If held long enough, along with the vibrations, a space-based game will appear. You can pilot a ship and discover 6 planets in a system.
  • "Spells" may be "cast" on an Android phone by saying "Ok Google" followed by "Lumos" or "Nox" to turn the flashlight on and off, or "Silencio" to silence the ringer and notifications.[148]

Android applications[edit]

  • In the Google Play Games app, if the player swipes the Konami Code, a box will appear with three buttons – a B, an A and an . Pressing B then A then unlocks a secret achievement called "All your game are belong to us", a reference to the well known "All your base are belong to us" phrase.[205]
  • In the Google Phone (Dialer) app, inputting the "Emergency Number" "0118 999 881 999 119 725 3", advertised to replace "999" in The IT Crowd's season 1 episode "Calamity Jen", will cause the phone to vibrate and the call button to flash blue and red. The feature is supported to work on stock Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat,[206][207][208] and is still present on Oreo (8.1) devices.[citation needed]
  • In Google+, if the device is shaken while viewing a photo, snow will fall; if the device is shaken again it will save an animated GIF of the image with falling snow to the pictures directory. Note that Google+ no longer exists, as it has been replaced with a now defunct social app called Google Currents in 2019 after its shutdown.[209]
  • Searching for "let's go caroling" or "let's go carolling" on Google Now will result in an extra card which displays a list of Christmas carols. The phone will play the music and show the words if one of them is selected.[210]
  • On YouTube Creator Studio, swiping down the screen repeatedly will show a cat at the top of the screen.[211]
  • Entering the tabview on the Google Chrome app and swiping up on a tab five times will cause the tab to do a backflip.[212]
  • Opening more than 99 tabs in the Google Chrome app will result in ":D" shown instead of the number of opened tabs. In incognito tab it will show ";)".[212]
  • Tapping on the dinosaur, which is shown if the Google Chrome app is not able to connect to internet, will start Dinosaur Game.[212]



The Fidget Spinner that replaces the buffering icon
  • On YouTube for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and on YouTube TV, holding rewind (left on a gamepad thumbstick, left or J on a keyboard) for a few seconds while at the beginning of a video, will cause an animated image of a small dog to run across the video's progress bar. This easter egg is no longer available.[213][214]
  • On a video published by Numberphile on June 22, 2012, titled "Why do YouTube views freeze at 301?( see it )", the view count is intentionally frozen at 301,[46] referencing a bug that prevented the view counter from refreshing beyond 301 views.[215]
  • Adding "&wadsworth=1" to a video URL would apply "Wadsworth's constant", skipping the first third of the video.[216]
  • While viewing any video, typing "awesome" makes the progress bar and other player elements flash multicolored. Typing "awesome" again stops it.[217]
  • YouTube's robots.txt file at "www.youtube.com/robots.txt( see it )" states that it was "Created in the distant future (the year 2000) after the robotic uprising of the mid 1990s which wiped out all humans."[218] This is an ostensible reference to the song "Robots" by Flight of the Conchords.[219]
  • On December 12, 2015, in celebration of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the progress bar was changed in order to look like a Lightsaber. By signing up to a specially created page, users were able to follow the Light Side (which would change the progress bar to blue) or the Dark Side (which would change the progress bar to red). Account users had the option to return the effect to normal. Google disabled it for all users, February 1, 2016.[220]
  • A Snake game could be activated in the Adobe Flash player by pressing a combination of arrow keys while videos were paused or playing. Once started, the snake could be controlled by further use of the arrow keys, directing it to "gobble up dots" to increase its size. If the snake hit the edges of the video window, the game ended.[221][222] The feature no longer works with the HTML video player.[223]
  • When watching a video with "fidget spinner" in the title, the buffering icon would change into a spinning fidget spinner. This easter egg no longer works.[224]
  • In 2011, the Nyan Cat video on YouTube was updated to show a custom progress bar with an animated Nyan Cat and a rainbow trail.[225][226] The custom progress bar was later removed at an unknown date. [citation needed]
  • In December 2011, a button was added that would overlay a falling snow effect over most YouTube videos.[227]
  • The title for Adult Swim's Too Many Cooks short on YouTube is displayed in the same font and color as the title cards in the video are.( see it )[228]

YouTube search[edit]

A YouTube search for:

  • "beam me up scotty", a reference to Star Trek, would cause the search results to beam down onto the screen, as in Star Trek.[229]
  • "doge meme" changes the font on the search result page to pastel color Comic Sans typical of the Doge meme, but has since been removed[230][better source needed][231]( see it )
  • "do the harlem shake" will cause the Harlem Shake song to play and the results to dance around.[232]
  • "technoblade" will cause a prompt to show up under the search bar, which reads: "Did you mean: technoblade never dies" This is in tribute to Technoblade, a popular Minecraft Youtuber who died on June 30, 2022.[233]

  • "webdriver torso" will return the results but with a red background and a blue rectangle around some videos. It also says "aqua.flv – Slide 000[0–9]" at the bottom left of the page. This Easter egg is a reference to the Webdriver Torso mystery. Google has confirmed that it is behind the Webdriver Torso mystery; it is one of many test channels used by YouTube to ensure video quality.[234]


Lonely T-Rex
  • If the user tries to browse when offline, a message is shown that they are not connected to the Internet. An illustration of the "Lonely T-Rex" dinosaur is shown at the top, which blinks occasionally, designed by Sebastien Gabriel.[235][236][29] From September 2014, tapping the dinosaur (in Android or iOS) or pressing space or (on desktop) launches a browser game known as the Dinosaur Game in which the player controls a running dinosaur by tapping the screen (in Android or iOS) or pressing space, or (on desktop) to avoid obstacles, including cacti and, from June 2015, pterodactyls. In 2016, another feature was added to the game. When the player reaches 700 points the game begins to switch between day (white background, black lines and shapes) and night (black background, white lines and shapes). During September 2018, for Google Chrome's 10th birthday, a birthday cake causing the dinosaur to wear a birthday hat when collected was added.[237] Reaching a score of 900 will switch the color scheme back to day, and the switch back and forth will occur at further subsequent milestones.[236][238][239][240] The game is also available at the "chrome://network-error/-106" and "chrome://dino"[failed verification] pages.[241] The game's code is available on the Chromium site.[239]
