Google search results for ‘Wordle’ now feature a delightful Easter egg
The folks at Google are apparently as happily obsessed with Wordle as everyone else.
The tech giant has embedded a new Easter egg in search results for Wordle, the word guessing game that went viral at the start of 2022.
Now, when you search for the game on Google, six squares in the Wordle style appear at the top of the results above the search bar. The squares get filled with letters, forming a few different words, with different letters lighting up in green and yellow. So close! Finally, the invisible Wordle player hits on the right six letter word, which is, of course, Google.
Nothin’ but greens, baby!
A delightful romantic origin story chronicled in the New York Times, and the fact that players only get one word to play every day — which prevents burnout and boredom, and keeps you coming back for more — has helped the simple and independent word game become one of 2022’s first internet phenomena.
Wordle has inspired a host of imitators, some more upsetting than others (Get outta here, Absurdle!). Luckily, searching for Wordle on Google delivers the correct UK-based website for the game as the top result. Wordle on, people!
