We already showed you the Jelly Bean easter egg that Google added to the Nexus 7 tablet, and now the folks at Android Police have discovered that the Nexus Q also has its own easter egg. We have to hand it to the Google engineers… they do seem to have a sense of humor. Since the Nexus Q is spherical, the easter egg turns the Nexus Q app into a Magic 8-Ball that answers questions.
To place the Q in 8-Ball mode, you launch the Nexus Q app, tap the picture of the Q sphere several times, then the app says “Have a dilemma? Ask the Q” and waits for voice input. You can then proceed to ask it yes or no questions, just like a Magic 8-Ball. The answers seem to be limited to things like “Maybe” and “I am not sure right now” so I don’t suggest using this for any major decisions in life.
Hit the break for some screenshots.
I picked up a Nexus Q at Google I/O but have yet to be able to get it working on my network since it requires very specific router settings. Perhaps I can ask the Magic Q-Ball for advice.
