Google Easter Eggs

Top 12 Amazing Google Easter Eggs Hidden Within Google Search

Google has beautifully hidden lots of Easter Eggs within your search bar that you might have missed. And we have dug out some the best Google Easter Eggs and shared in this post.

#1  Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a parlour game based on the “six degrees of separation” concept which suggests that any two people are six or fewer acquaintance links apart. Google also rolled out this game in the Easter Eggs list.

Move over to Google Search and type in the name of a celebrity followed by “bacon number” and Google crunches the numbers for you, it spits out how many degrees of separation the person is from Kevin Bacon — their bacon number.

The strangest [Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon match] was somebody connected me to John Wilkes Booth in six degrees or less. And what’s interesting about that is that when John Wilkes Booth was an actor, there were no films, but someone that he acted with, who would I guess be quite a bit younger than him, was in some stage production grew up and became old enough to be in … silent films, and then it kind of went on from there to the talkies, and I was connected to him in six degrees. So, you know, a dubious distinction. – Kevin Bacon

Now for a little change, instead of Google Search, head over to Google Image Search. Type in “atari breakout” and Google will instantly transform the whole result page into a Breakout game.

I found this one funny, type “what sound does a cow make” and it will play the appropriate sound. You can swap cow with few other animals.
