Google is well known for its shenanigans and easter eggs when it comes to search, just try a Google search for “askew” to see them in action. So when Google Now on Android gets a cool new voice activated feature, I wonder if it is an easter egg or a full blown feature. This time around, try following up “Okay, Google” with “play some music” and you’ll get an “I’m feeling lucky” radio station fired up in the Google Play Music app.
