Youtube Easter Eggs You Need To Know

Everyone knows that Youtube is the king of streaming platforms. The diverse content on the website makes it the mainstay when it comes to video streaming services. This is why a lot of people always visit the website. But little do people know that Youtube has a lot of secretly built-in features. Everyone loves finding out easter eggs on everything and Youtube is not an exception. Here is the list of functional easter eggs you can find on Youtube.

Rainbow Colored Progress Bar

Who knew that you can change the color of the progress bar on youtube? To access this feature, you just need the video you want to watch. Then type “AWESOME” using your keyboard. After you finish typing it, you will notice a sudden change in the progress bar of the video you are watching. The progress bar will turn into a rainbow color which is very different than the normal one. If you want to revert to the original color of the progress bar, you just need to type “AWESOME” again then it will be back.

Missile Control Game

Youtube just implemented an easter egg that has a game in it. You can access by opening a youtube video you want to watch then typing “1980” on the webpage. By doing this it will launch the whole missile control game Youtube prepared.

Fibonacci Sequence

Youtube also introduced a new search method where the webpage will arrange the results in the Fibonacci Sequence. Fibonacci Sequence in mathematics means, each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two numbers. In this easter egg, when you type “Fibonacci” in the search box the results will show you the video results arranged in tile based on the Fibonacci sequence.

While there are no easter eggs where you can just download youtube videos from their website, I suggest using Youtube Playlist to MP3 so you can download the videos you want in mp3 file format.
