Best Android Easter Eggs You Just Have To See!

Easter Egg - Intentional joke, picture or a hidden message in certain program. It can be opened variuos and maybe confusing ways. This is the list of easter eggs hidden in Android system Gingerbread-JellyBean and some custom ROMs!

Android's hidden mascot -

Since the Android 2.3, named GingerBread was published, the first EasterEgg has come to the public. It was a hidden mascot findable in settings. This mascot is continuing to another system and it's findable even in Android 4.3.

How to find?

  • Navigate to settings -> about phone -> system version
  • Tap six (or more) times on system version.
  • The mascot will appear.
The mascots were changing with every new system. Check the list -

The "mascot" has changed in Android 4 versions and turned out into an animation. In ICS, it were flying droids, in JellyBean there were flying beans. (Which has to turned out to be a daydream feature "BeanFlinger" in Android 4.2).

Eastereggs in custom ROMs -

Eastereggs also appear in custom ROMs, like CyanogenMod. If you navigate to version of CyanogenMod and tap it, you will find this -

Also, one easteregg appeared in Calculator, while in landscape view, you can find a picture of easter egg if you scroll to the right. If you click this egg, it will say - Magikarp used splash but nothing happened. 

Eastereggs in Google Apps -

Various eastereggs can be found also in Google Applications but unfortunately, the msot of them have been already patched.
Some working exist now, like Google Translate BeatBox, or Google Maps hidden pictures.

This new easteregg has been added recently to Google Play Games. It can be activated with a Konami Code, which is a cheat code that appeared in old games developed by Konami.
