By now, everyone has heard about Google’s shiny new media streamer sphere, the Nexus Q, but not everyone has seen what it has to offer.
It seems that the company has embedded a cool little Easter egg feature in the device that allows you to ask it questions using your voice — kind of like a more advanced version of the classic Magic 8-ball toy. To access the “Magic 8-Ball Mode,” users need only repeatedly tap the Nexus Q image in the device’s Android app. A screen then pops up with the following message: “Have a dilemma? Ask the Q.”
The responses are packaged, and you can’t really get a legitimate answer like you would if you were asking the new Google Now voice search feature or Apple’s Siri. Still, this goes a long way in showing the full potential of the Nexus Q — even if it doesn’t convince people to pony up the $300 for one when there are cheaper options out there.
