How to play Android 11 Hidden Easter Egg Game

Google includes a hidden “Easter Egg” with every new version of Android. Android 11 has one of the more elaborate Easter eggs as it is actually a game that you can play. We’ll show you how to find it and play it.

The Android 11 Easter Egg game is a reboot of the game that came with Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s all about attracting and collecting virtual cats on your phone. The idea sounds strange, but it’s quite addicting.

The first step is to find the Easter Egg and activate the game. On your Android 11 phone or tablet, swipe down from the top of the screen (once or twice, depending on the device manufacturer), then select the gear icon to open the Settings menu.

Next, scroll all the way down and tap on “About Phone”.

Dial over the phone

Select “Android Version” there.

At last, tap on “Android Version” repeatedly until you get to some sort of volume control.

This is the Android 11 Easter Egg, but it’s just the beginning. To start the cat collecting game, you have to turn the rotary button from 1 to 10 three times. The third attempt goes past 10 and shows the “11” logo.

After the “11” logo appears, you will see a cat emoji in a toast notification at the bottom of your screen. This means that the game has been activated.

The aim of the game is to collect cats. You do this by filling virtual water and food bowls and playing with cat toys. To begin, press and hold the physical “power” button on your phone or tablet. Tap the three-dot menu icon.
