10 Easter eggs found in Android

10 Easter eggs found in Android
Did you know that Android is full of hidden external references and a number of Easter eggs? That's right -- Google got into the habit of adding at least one new hidden screen (or something else entirely) as early as Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Since then, most of these have come in the form of a hidden screen, accessible through the settings menu after you perform a particular number of taps at a particular spot. 

Of course, Easter eggs in Android aren't limited to just a hidden fancy screen (as cool as those are), as the company infused Google Now with a few pre-programmed scenarios as well. If that wasn't enough, finding certain Easter eggs, and knowing what to do, will actually win you a small nod from Google in the from of an equally small extra functionality. Curious to find out what functionality we're talking about and what these Easter Eggs are all about? To the slideshow, then!

It's not "Laurem Ipsum" but rather "Lauren Ipsum" which makes it even funnier.

Exactly, also because the correct version would be "Lorem ipsum" ;)

My favorite is one that's not listed on here. You can say “Go go gadget (insert app name here)" and it will open it.

Probably not now but when I was a kid it was one of the most popular cartoons out in the US. Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh even used the music in one of the best hip hop, rap songs ever. The Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDkqz5C62SM
