Easter Eggs: Remember all the hidden surprises on Android

Easter Eggs are not always chocolate! They may also be hidden in each of the Android updates. For those of you who missed one, or haven't received the update yet, we created this nostalgic list of them all, from Gingerbread to Android Pie. Check them all out.

Remembering that all Easter eggs are enabled in: System Setup> About Phone> Android version (click on this menu ten times or press it for a few seconds). Easter eggs with games are activated when the user presses the version logo for a few seconds.

Android 9.0 Pie

The latest version of Android brings with it a very curious "Easter egg", which is nothing more than a hand-drawn canvas. Just touch the symbol of the letter P, which represents the Android Pie a few times, and then hold for a few seconds until the Paint version of the robot appears. Good miscellaneous!

Android 8.0 Oreo

Android Oreo brings an Easter egg, let's say, at the very least. This is the character known as Oreoctopus, which can be manipulated on the screen of the device, moving his body and his head. In models with Active Edge, which is the technology that executes commands on the system by pressing on the edges of the device, a bubble game is displayed in place of that subject.

Android 7.0 Nougat

Again, Google thought of all the details. In Android 7.0 Nougat, the intention of the little game is to attract a kitten to a plate of food (Strange? Yes! But why not?). And the very simple process:

You can select what you want to feed to attract the kitten. The options are: Bits (pieces of something), Fish (Fish), Chicken (Chicken) and Treat (delicacy). You can use your smartphone again as usual and get a notification as soon as the cat comes to eat on your plate.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android Marshmallow was unveiled during Google I / O 2015, and shortly thereafter, its Easter Egg surfaced, but without much innovation. Incidentally, the game is the same as Lollipop, but this time you can play with more than one little robot at a time (as if it's not hard enough with one) and the goal is to try to get the Android robot to pass between two giant marshmallows and survive without touching anything.

Android 5.0 Lollipop

Lollipop was one of the most innovative Android updates and, as we had hoped, also brought an Easter Egg up. This is a game similar to the acclaimed and difficult Flappy Bird. The intention is to make the green Android doll do not touch anything, including the giant lollipops. And with that, of course, he gets points.

Android 4.4 KitKat

Android KitKat was no exception, but its Easter Egg was not the most creative of all, at least with regard to the logo. The Google developers simply put the Android name on the well-known chocolate KitKat logo.

However, in the next step of Easter Egg we found a mosaic with images of all previous versions of Android, where it was possible to play by clicking on each icon to make it disappear.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Sometimes we wonder where Android developers get their creativity from. On all devices running Jelly Bean, you can find the Easter Egg version. First, we see a Jelly Bean also known as a giant, eye-and-mouth jujube, and then hundreds of flying Jelly Beans with which we can interact. And the game never ends.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Do you remember Nyan Cat, the pixelated kitten that crosses the space with a rainbow? I think he was the inspiration for the Easter Egg from Android Ice Cream Sandwich. And this was the first version with animated Android robots to be featured on the operating system.

In this Easter Egg, we see little Ice Cream Sandwich pixelated robots that look more like a caveman Android, floating through space.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb

The Honeycomb version was not left out. Fortunately, she's less scary than Android Gingerbread's Easter Egg. In this version we see a bee, in Tron style: The Legacy, an American science fiction movie, with the text "REZZZZZZ …" right below its iron. For those who don't know yet, "Rezzing" means "creating something" in Tron's world. Who said Android in the geek?

Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Android developers have not always had good taste in creating Easter Eggs and Gingerbread as proof. The surprise of this version is, to say the least, strange. The scary image is very subjective, and not knowing what went through the heads of those responsible at the time, is difficult to explain. You can draw your own conclusions.
