How To Find Google's DVD Screensaver Easter Egg | Screen Rant
Another Google Easter egg is here and this time it is inspired by the DVD screensaver. Here's how to find the latest hidden treat in Search.
has a new DVD screensaver Easter egg available to access in Search. Google is no stranger to Easter eggs in general, and although some were released years ago and have since disappeared, others have remained available online and are still available today. With the latest DVD-themed one, Google is providing a little movie nostalgia to those that might have since moved to streaming.
As with most things, the internet has changed how people consume TV shows and movies. However, there was a time when it was all DVDs, with the format doing for video what CDs did for music. Often packed with extras, DVDs offered better value, although consumers did have to contend with regional differences. Even today, DVD movies have a different runtime in the UK compared to the U.S.
To enable the Easter egg, the user simply needs to head over to and type in “DVD screensaver.” At which point, the Google logo will move away from its usually top-left position on the Search page and travel across the screen at an angle, before bouncing off the other side and continuing its journey indefinitely. Each time it touches a side of the screen, the logo will change color, just like the original DVD screensaver. For reference, the Easter egg is only available on desktop, so it won't be work on mobile devices.
In spite of the rise of streaming, DVDs and players are still available to buy. However, with many having made the switch from disc to the internet, the DVD screensaver will be more of a memory. For those that don't remember, or have yet to encounter the workings of a DVD player, then just like screensavers of today, once the DVD player enters a hibernate or sleep state, the screensaver activates resulting in the DVD logo bouncing around the screen. This action is exactly what the Google logo is imitating in the latest Easter egg. While the Google version won’t actually result in the same benefits the original DVD screensaver attempted to offer, it is still another Easter egg worth checking out.
As mentioned, Easter eggs are a popular pastime with Google, and there have been quite a few movie-related ones. In the past, Google has embraced Avengers with the ability to perform a Thanos snap on the Search results and the option to turn the page into a sepia-toned version with a The Wizard Of Oz Easter egg. For now, though, users will have to make do with a DVD screensaver, or take part in a quick round of Atari Breakout.
