Whether you are new to Android phones or you’ve been around for a while, you may be surprised to learn about the multiple hidden features that Google has put into the Android platform. Perhaps one of the best-kept secrets that many Android users aren’t aware of are the Android Easter Eggs.
Accessing Android Easter Eggs
From the time Android started, Android users have always loved to explore and discover what they can do with their phone. This lead to Android developers putting in some occasional surprises in the system which only those who love tinkering with their phone can discover. These surprises are referred to as Android Easter Eggs, and the best known – and most fun – Android Easter Eggs are the mini games.
Of course, not all of us have the time or interest to go digging through every little menu in our Android device’s settings, so I’m going to just show you how to access your Android Easter Egg mini game.
It takes less than a minute and is super simple. Here is what you have to do:
- Open your Settings.
- Scroll down and look for the “System” option and open it.
- Look for the “About Phone” option and open it.
- Find the “Android Version” tab.
- Rapidly press the “Android Version” tab until something pops up. Usually what pops up is the icon of your latest Android Version.
Hidden Games to Unlock
After unlocking the secret, you can now play the secret game on your Android version. The games are unique, and some of them are spin-offs of the most popular game of the century. Here are some of the games or tricks you can find, depending on your version of Android:
- Android 8.0 – The latest version allows you to play around and control some sea creatures on your phone.
- Android 7.0 – A spin-off based on a popular Japanese mobile game, Neko Atsume – Android Neko. The game is pretty cute, and you can even feed the cats.
- Android 6.0 and 5.0 – A spin-off to Flappy Bird that is fun and addictive.
