Google Konami Code for Desktop Voice Search Unlocks Unlimited Free Searches

Looks like Google has harnessed its sense of humor again with its own Konami Code for desktop voice search that unlocks a prize: free unlimited Google searches! 

To try it out yourself, activate voice search, and then say: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right.

If you’re a player of video games, you’re probably aware of the “Konami Code” — a “cheat” code that works on games produced by Konami Corporation (and some other non-Konami games).

TechCrunch reported it isn’t the first time Google has harnessed the Konami Code: 

When inputted into the Pixel Chromebook, the LED strip on the lid of the laptop puts on a light show by blinking a random series of colors. The infamous code also unlocks an achievement in Google Play.

Google has been known for hiding gems across the Web for specific searches, too. Have you tried searching for the oldie-but-goodie “do a barrel roll” or “tilt“? Good times. 

If you know of any other hidden treasures (a.k.a., “easter eggs“), share them in the comments below.
