Android Easter Egg
It’s Easter time, so why not check out a neat easter egg on Android? This specific easter egg is coded into the stock Android Phone app, and shows that someone at Google is a bit of an IT Crowd fan.

The easter egg is based on Season 1 Episode 2 of the IT Crowd, when the government decides to replace their ‘999’ emergency number with a ‘slightly’ longer version.

If you’re on mobile reading this, here’s the number (you can click it to load into the dialer) 0118999881999119725 and then once you’re in there add the number 3 for this to work. If you’re not on mobile and want to see what happens, check out this video:

    Didn’t work on my z3 compact with the google dialer either. Tried inputting the numbers from scratch or using the link and adding 3. Neither worked 🙁

    Worked on my 5x…. Did you press 3 after clicking on the dialing link to complete the number?
