There is also a guest mode for temporary users. New modes can be accessed and created by pulling down the Notification menu and tapping the person icon in the top right corner of the screen.

8. Access Google’s Flappy Bird clone

The mobile game Flappy Bird took the world by storm in 2014. After reaching the top of the charts, the game was suddenly removed by its creator from the Google Play Store. As a homage to the game, Google added a Flappy Bird-inspired Android version as an Easter egg in Lollipop.

To access it, head to Settings, click on About Phone and tap “Android version” repeatedly. A lollipop will appear on your screen, a single tap will change the color of the tasty treat, while a long-press will open the game.
