Google is known to hide Easter eggs in its products. Fans have found numerous such items in the last few years and shared with others the way to get to them. Every version of Android since 2.3 Gingerbread has had one such surprise, and even Google Chrome has its own dinosaur-themed mini-game Easter egg.
However, some might wonder what exactly is an Android Easter egg. Simply put, it is a hidden feature in the Android operating system that you can access by carrying out certain procedures in the settings menu. There have been a lot during the last few years, starting with interactive images of simple and exciting games.
To find an Easter egg on your mobile device, perform the following steps:
• Head over to ‘Settings’ and tap on ‘About Phone,’ or ‘Settings,’ ‘System’ and then ‘About Phone’
• Tap on the Android version number a few times
• A hidden screen should appear with a nifty little something
In some versions, users get a picture. On others, it can be a game; regardless of what you get, it’s just made for fun.
An Easter Egg for Google Play Store Users
Now, thanks so a few keen-sighted tipsters, Google could be working on another Easter egg mini-game, but this time, it will appear in the Google Play Store. The mini-game has recently been seen on Twitter in at least two different instances: Twitter users Alessandro Paluzzi (@alex193a) and Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) have both found the Chrome mini-game mentioned above.

Paluzzi said that this Play Store mini-game could be an offline experience, much like that on Google Chrome, but it seems that there is no way for the average users to get to it without some reverse engineering proceedings.
There is no detail if or when the company will actually launch this new Google Play Store Easter egg, but people see it as something funny to expect in the near future.
