The famous game Flappy Bird (technically Flappy Droid ) is still in Android 9.0 Pie. First introduced in 5.0 Lollipop, the game was originally the version number easter egg for the new Android update. But after Android Marshmallow, Google began to hide it from its usual location, and Pie continues that tradition.
Just like Nougat and Oreo, the hidden game is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow version, which uses marshmallow-shaped barriers. Although it may be a bit dated, it's still a fun time-waster that does not need an internet connection, and it's a nice little secret that you can share with your friends to showcase your advanced Android knowledge.
Unlocking the Flappy Droid Game
To find the game, you'll need an activity launcher to create a widget that's assigned to a shortcut. Some of the most popular Activity Launcher apps are not yet working with Android 9.0, so the easiest method is to use Nova Launcher.
If Nova Launcher is open, long press on the Home screen and select "Widgets". Under the section for Nova Launcher, select "Activities". Scroll down until you find a "System UI" drop-down menu. Select it, and then select "Marshmallow Land".
After selection, the widget changes to a "P" icon. Just tap this icon to start the game. Fun date, the Dessert Case Easter Egg from older Android versions can also be found using the same method.
After you turn on If you have clicked the widget, select the play button to start the game. You can adjust the number of characters you want to control using the plus sign at the top of the screen, otherwise all you have to do is tap the screen to keep the Android logo from getting in the way – much easier said than done!
