Many Google apps are adding Easter Eggs for April 1st or releasing fun product videos. One location whimsy business lives all year round, though, is Google Search. Searching for “fireworks” will offer you a mini-color display on your phone for July 4th.
Before Independence Day, the seconds-long display will begin some search queries that include “fireworks”— even “child you’re a firework.” The light jet streams from the bottom of your screen before they explode into a variety of colors. It rises in intensity like any nice display, and will stay in the center perspective as you scroll.
It lasts 5-6 seconds and is rather whimsical, with the show also being initiated by “Fourth of July.” This is probable to gain a lot of playback and visibility with a Google Doodle coming on Thursday.
In addition to the desktop, Google’s Easter Egg fireworks also surprisingly appear on mobile phones, including Google.com and the Android app from Google.
There’s no way to disable the show once it begins, which could get awkward if you’re actively searching for data like “fireworks close me.” Then again, the whimsy is more or less suitable for that search. You can still go through the partly obstructed screen and click on the connections.
