Google is pretty well known for inserting easter eggs in their apps, indeed they’ve put a pretty nerdy one in the phone dialer previously and it looks like another one has been found.

Cody Toombs over at Android Police has found a new easter egg while playing around in the Google Phone 9.0 APKm, which was then decoded by a tipster, which let’s the dogs (or cats) out on your dialer.

According to Android Police, if you dial * # * # 729 # * # *  (729=PAW) you’ll see a dog or cat paw pop up to swipe the answer button on your screen next time you take a call. You can disable the easter egg simply by entering the same system code in, it’s simply a toggle.

Here’s the tipsters video of the easter egg in action:

Pretty neat, version 9.0 of the Google Phone dialler should be on your Pixel/Nexus phone, or if you want you can download it onto a compatible device from Google Play.

    Hi, just wanted to say there’s a small typo in the dial code in the article. The code should be * # * # 729 # * # * otherwise it won’t work
