Google_Now_Easter_Egg_Universe_On_Nexus_5

Google might be one of the most innovative companies, but they are also a company that likes to have a lot of fun. Take Easter Eggs for example. They include them all over the place, and Google Now is becoming a very popular destination. XDA member akhan47 put together this collection of known Easter Eggs. I say known because it’s unlikely this is every Easter Egg that is part of Google Now. If you think about it, the possibilities are endless, so I am sure a few more will surface, plus it’s likely Google will add more. Be sure to let us know in the comments if you come up with anything that’s missing and we will add it. Hit the break for the “complete” (and ongoing) list.

We decided to provide you with only the questions so you can have a little fun with it. Just say any of the phrases listed and listen and/or look for the Easter Egg. Note: the first one won’t yield a response since they are just a few more ways to initiate a new search.

  • Instead of “OK Google” you can use “Hey Google”, “OK Computer”, “OK Jarvis”, “OK Glass”, “Listen Google”, or “OK Chrome”
  • “Make me a sandwich”
  • “Sudo/Sudu, make me a sandwich”
  • “Beam me up Scotty”
  • “When am I?”
  • “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”
  • “What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?”
  • “Who are you?”
  • “What is the nature of the universe?”
  • “What is your favourite color?”
  • “What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?”
  • “Do a barrel roll”
  • “Askew or “Tilt”
  • “Who’s on first” then as again -from Mad Mike
  • “What is the loneliest number?” -from B.J. Davlin
  • “What is [insert celebrity's name]‘s bacon number?” -from B.J. Davlin
  • “Let’s go caroling” (This one might not be available after Christmas)
  • “up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right”

    • jeffallin

      You need to have voice input set to English US, go to Google Now, settings, Voice, Then set Language to “English US”…and make sure Hotword detection is on in the same settings menu

      • jeffallin

        Hopefully they add it to other languages soon so I can set mine to English Canada, I have to fake an American accent so it’ll understand me, lol

  • Bryan Haywood

    The different names work… But the sayings don’t… I’m on stock 4.3 on a nexus 4… I’m up to date on the Google search. (even the new apk online) I would assume that’s server side though… So I don’t know what the deal is… And yes I have the volume up.

    • eureb

      if you initiate the voice search by doing “hello google” or the like, the other ones don’t work. you have to manually hit the voice button, then do the sayings

  • B.J. Davlin

    Can also ask, “What is the loneliest number?” — “What is [insert celebrity's name]‘s bacon number?”

  • Mad Mike

    Try asking “Who’s on first”. Then try asking it again.

  • KestrelKnight

    “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” gets the response, “Actually, Count Rugen killed Inigo Montoya’s father.”

    Not even a spoiler alert.
