There is no shortage of Easter eggs in Google's software products. This penchant for hidden quirks seems to have found its way into the latest pixel series with a cool new Easter egg that includes a Pixel 4 box, Google Lens, and some AR-Chops. This game is not as appealing as the Google app's Flappy Bird-like game, but it's interactive enough to meet Google's marketing purpose.
The sales packaging of the Pixel 4 has a product image that covers almost the entire back. Scanning with Google Lens animates the image with a flashy overlay before inviting you to #teampixel. Then, a vertical scrolling slideshow with photos that have been clicked on pixels will be texted to prompt you to follow Google Pixel on Instagram. When you tap one of these slides, a Lens card is displayed that leads you to the Instagram account, which is constantly updated with photos taken by Pixel users worldwide.
Lens and ARcore have significant malfunctions at this year's I / O These are used to facilitate the AR experience of this Easter egg. As you can see in the attached video, the overlay has a good quality and retains (mostly) its original position even when the phone is moved around. Google introduced a similar feature some time ago when scanning the NBA logo with Lens for a short animation and relevant game stats.
