Android M Easter egg unleashes the “Meh” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


We can debate what the M in Android M stands for until our blog is blue in the bot, but one thing we know for sure is that this year’s Easter egg is a whole lot of “Meh”:

If you’re not privy to the “meh face” or “meh” in general, allow us to walk you down the road of internet slangdom, courtesy of the internet’s Encyclopedia Britannica (aka Urban Dictionary):

(1) Indifference; to be used when one simply does not care.
(2) “The verbal equivalent of a shrug of the shoulders.” -quoth me
Person A: What do you want for dinner?
Person B: Meh.
You needn’t look far to see the word memed around the world (wide web).
This isn’t the craziest Easter egg we’ve seen Google hide, but crazy isn’t the purpose of Easter eggs and this particular Easter egg is practically hidden in plain view. For example, Google has previously delighted users with a Flappy Bird Easter egg for Android Lollipop and the Jelly Bean Easter egg on Android 4.1.
The real question: will we start seeing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ all over the place?

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

Lollipop’s sound profiles were confusing, Android Marshmallow’s are much clearer

    1. Really? I had a much more negative reaction than meh.
      Ended up reverting all my devices to kitkat and disabling the update notification.

  5. Keep in mind that this is most likely the Dane as what they did in the L Dev Preview : a placeholder Easter Egg which would be replaced when the final version is released.

    Also, any chance of getting a(n autographed) Phandroid business card? It would look great matching with my watch with the Phandroid watch face ;)

    1. If you really want one, sure. I could even toss in a Phandroid bumper sticker! Send an email to “my firstname my lastname” with no spaces [at] with your mailing address.
