Google’s official rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow was said to start for Nexus devices today, and not too long ago the factory images were posted for supported Nexus phones and tablets. This is only a week after Google officially announced Android 6.0 Marshmallow alongside the unveiling of the two new Nexus smartphones, the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, which will launch with the version of software running on them out of the box. While each new version of Android generally tends to introduce some new features and new UI changes, another thing that users have grown to look forward to is the coming of a brand new easter egg.
Ever since Gingerbread Google had been inserting easter eggs into the software which could be found by tapping the software version number from the about phone section in the settings menu, and now that Marshmallow is beginning its descent onto Nexus devices the question is, what will it be? Although users will have to wait till they get their hands on the software themselves or wait for the first details to hit the web from other users to find out what the Marshmallow easter egg is, Google’s Nat and Lo seem to have teased it in a new feature video and also the 8th episode from their video series on YouTube. The video is called “A Brief History of Android Easter Eggs.”
The video doesn’t really give much in the way of detail, so if you’re eagerly waiting to find out you may just have to wait, or you could watch the video over and over and see if you might be able to find any clues or hints. More than anything though, the video can serve as a trip down memory lane for anyone who has been using Android since easter eggs became a thing and simply want to reminisce about each one as they highlight them throughout the video. With the factory images already hitting the web it won’t be long before any users who have installed it check the easter egg out and then post videos of it to YouTube, so you won’t even likely have to be that patient to discover what Google has in store for users this time around.
