Android Nougat still has Flappy Droid and the Dessert Case Daydream


With each new iteration of Android, Google introduces a brand new Easter egg “hidden” away in settings. I say “hidden” as a result of these Easter eggs are extra of an Android custom/Google inside-joke by this level, slightly than one thing we’re supposed to truly hunt for.

To entry the Easter egg in Android, all it’s a must to do is go to Settings –> About Cellphone and faucet repeatedly on the “Android model” block till you see the Android model brand. Then, faucet repeatedly on the emblem for just a few seconds to “unlock” the Easter egg, then long-press on the emblem to start out it.

The exercise is named “Marshmallow Land” and is an exercise below the SystemUI package deal. Launching the exercise will carry up the Flappy Droid sport that everyone knows and love. This exercise was in fact additionally current within the SystemUI package deal from Marshmallow, so it’s potential that Google forgot to take away it for the Nougat replace. However the existence of one more older Easter egg – the Dessert Case Easter egg from Android KitKat – means that Google simply leaves these in and doesn’t hassle eradicating them.
