If you want to explore your Android cell phone, your efforts can take you to the hidden treasures inside your phone – the Easter Eggs.

Easter Eggs are messages, symbols and jokes hidden in movies, paintings, video games books and computer software to add fun and entertainment. They are little rewards to the people who pay undivided attention and know where to find appropriate tools. Your Android device will surely have Easter egg right now.

When did it appear for the first time?

The first Android Easter egg appeared in Android 2.3 Gingerbread version. You can find it by:

Setting >> About phone >> rapid tapping

Continue tapping until you see a painting which consists of Gingerbread man with his frightening teeth and our very own Android mascot with a pack of zombies who are talking on mobiles.

Next Appearance – in Honeycomb

Android 3.0 Honeycomb featured a bee-like Android robot which appeared as an Easter egg. The process of finding it is not too complicated. You need to:

Settings >> About device >> Android version (quick tapping)

If you’re using Honeycomb version, you can find your Easter egg by following this path and quick tapping (don’t break the screen though). You will soon see a blue Android bee appearing on your screen saying “REZZZZZZZZ” (You’ve got what you wanted, now stop tapping!)

Third Appearance …

Easter egg in Android 4.0 version Ice Cream Sandwich was introduced on the popular theme of Nyan Cat. It was half cat, half pastry, flying across the sky full of stars with a rainbow contrail. The idea received more than 93 million views. Similarly, “Nyanroid” in Ice Cream Sandwich is a mixture of Android robot and ice cream sandwich. Just like the process used for previous versions, you need to go to Setting, followed by tapping on About, then tap on the screen when the version information appears. As Nyanroid appears, long press it to see the flock of Nyanroids.

In Android 4.1-4.2 Jelly Bean

You’d have guessed by now what Easter egg in Jelly Bean looks like. Quite a lot of jelly beans, in fact. Follow this path:

Settings >> About >> Version information and tapping

You’ll soon discover a massive jellybean appearing on your screen. Long pressing the bean will break it into small floating beans which need some flicking to get off the screen. Android 4.2 has an enhanced version of Easter egg which does not require you to get to the jelly bean filled screen by the above mentioned process. You can follow these steps:

Display Settings >> Daydream >> Bean FInger

You’ll soon discover a massive jellybean appearing on your screen. Long pressing the bean will break it into small floating beans which need some flicking to get off the screen.

Android 4.4 KitKat Version offers more ….

Repeated tapping will reveal a “K” which, upon a touch, will turn your screen into KitKat-themed “Android” logo. Long-press the logo and it will reveal a Windows phone-style page. This page shows the images of all previous versions of Android mascots in tiled format.

Android 5.0 Lollipop Game
