Nat and Lo, otherwise known in real life as Googlers Natalie Hammel and Lorraine Yurshansky, have become the default mouthpieces for revealing what goes on behind the scenes at Google. Famously, they were there when Google unveiled the Android Marshmallow statue (and were there to prepare it too), and their latest video focuses on “A brief history of Android easter eggs”, namely, the themed animations the pop up if you keep hitting the software version number in “About Phone”. Check out the video below:
Nat and Lo’s video series makes up their “20% time” project, a famous (or infamous) mantra at Google where employees are encouraged to use 20% of their work time on other projects which further Google as a company. We like this kind of initiative as it humanizes Google a little more, rather than the robot that churns out Android software updates every 12 months, and puts faces to the easter eggs that we love claiming to know about to our less enlightened friends. Also, we won’t ruin the easter egg in Android Marshmallow either, but we have a feeling that it’s going to be very familiar. It’s Flappy Bird.
