Android Lollipop contains Flappy Bird Easter egg!

With each new version of Android comes a new "Easter egg" animation hidden away in the Settings app. In KitKat it was the dessert tray animation. In the Android L preview it was a reference to the obscure "webdriver torso" YouTube mystery. For the latest version of Lollipop (or at least as we see it in the latest October developer preview) Google's taken things a step further. There's a fully-featured clone of the Flappy Bird game hiding behind the Android version number under Settings > About phone.

Tap a bunch of times on the Android version numbers, then long-press one the giant lollipop that appears to launch into the game. We don't yet know if anything special happens if you progress past a certain point — we've only just managed two points so far. Either way, it's a worthy addition to Google's long line of Android easter eggs.
