Ah yes, a fresh new Easter Egg! If you have Developer Preview 4 of Android O on your device, you have a new Easter Egg to find in the Settings. For the first three DPs there was a cat emoji but that is now replaced with an octopus that you can interact with on your phone.
For those who don’t know how to get to it, it is easy. In Settings go to System>About Phone then tap on the Android Version 3-4 time really fast. This will bring up an Android O logo. Now tap on that 5 times real fast then hold it. It will disappear and bada-bing, you have the octopus floating on your screen.
Easter Eggs are nothing new and started with Android Jellybean where there were jellybeans floating about your screen. So this
begs the question: Are we seeing a hint at the name of Android O? To this point, Android names have been based on sweet treats like Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Jellybean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat. Are we getting our first hint of Android Octopus?
I hope not! It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue does it? I guess we will all find out in a few weeks when the final build is released.
For now, have fun with your pet octopus!
Orangina or Oreo Cookie, maybe?
