The guys from XDA Developers have discovered a new Easter egg presented in the preliminary version for developers of Android 8.1 in Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
The new version of the operating system of Google hides a mini-game of bubbles that takes advantage of the function Active Edge with which they count the last flagships of Google.
By repeatedly touching the “Tightening Sensitivity” option at the top of the “Active Edge” section of the Settings app, a game appears where you have to pop bubbles of ascending colors when you tighten the frames. The game ends when you run out of space for new bubbles to enter.
Active Edge is one of the new features of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, although Google has not publicized it as much as it did in its day HTC with the Edge Sense functionality of its flagship U11. Both characteristics are essentially identical and are based on the same technology.
Active Edge makes the phone frame sensitive to pressure and identifies different levels of pressure exerted by the user. Depending on the pressure, the phone can initiate actions such as activating the Google assistant or capturing a photo if we are using the Camera app. It is a kind of “physical shortcut” for certain functions.
Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were released earlier this month in the US. Our Pixel 2 XL with Android 8.0 does not have this game, so you can only try it if you have installed Android 8.1.
