Google Easter Eggs

Posted on Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 in Uncategorized by Nick

Everyone loves a good joke and so do the engineers over at Google. I’ve compiled a list of 6 different easter eggs and jokes for a few different Google products.

Let It Snow

Type in ‘Let It Snow’ on Google Search (or click here) to have snow fall and cover up your Google search results page. If you click and drag around the page the frost ‘defrosts’ and that part goes back to normal.

Barrel Roll

In Google Search, type in ‘Do A Barrel Roll’ for the search results page to literally do a barrel roll.

Different Languages 

Google has a few different language versions of its search feature. Languages like Swedish Chef’s BorkBork, Elmer Fudd, l33t text, Klingon, and Pirate.

Reader Ninja

In Google Reader, type in ‘up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A’ using the arrow keys. A ninja should appear on your page in the left hand column.

The Answer to Life

The Hitcherhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy says that 42 is the answer to life and apperently Google agrees. Type in ‘answer to life, the universe and everything’ as a search and 42 should come up as the answer.

Nyan Cat

In a Google+ chat, type in ‘~=[,,_,,]:3’ to have a nyan cat run across the chat. More hidden emotions for Google can be found here
