Google has a lot of fun hidden Easter eggs that you can find by searching the right phrase. Next time you’re on google try searching for the word “askew” – you might find that something feels a little off. Also, try googling the sentence “Do a Barrel Roll” – but try not to blink too fast, things might seem a little upside down.
Another Google Easter egg has to do with the famous Atari Breakout game that released in 1976. Try searching for “Atari Breakout” and clicking on the “Images” tab. Be prepared to find your typical results, but with a fun twist of the classic Atari game.
A popular Easter egg from Google happens when you lose your internet connection. Once you lose your connection the “There is no connection” page will pop up, along with a dinosaur. Next time this happens to you try hitting the spacebar. The results may make you want to disconnect your internet more often.
On the Google main page you have an option to click on “Google Search” or “I’m Feeling Lucky”. Before clicking the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button yet, try hovering your mouse over it. You may be surprised to see a slot machine effect take place.
This one may take some time to find, but it’s fun to search for. Once on Amazon’s main page navigate to the “Full Store Directory”. Once there scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. Underneath the “1996-2019” you will find a secret link to a letter.
