Unless you’ve been lost on planet Hoth for the past year, you’ll probably be aware that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be in cinemas by this time next month.To help ease the excitement of your inner geek, Google has revealed they have hidden some Star Wars Easter eggs in their programs and websites. If you type A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away into a Google search bar, your search page will turn into the iconic Star Wars opening sequence of scrolling yellow titles disappearing into the depths of starry space.
Their blog post also revealed the creation of google.com/starwars in collaboration with Disney and Lucas Arts. In their words, you can choose the light or the dark side, and then watch your favorite Google apps like Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome and many more transform to reflect your path. The company has been shy on details, although IFLScience found in Google Maps that the Street View icon becomes a rebel pilot if you choose the light side of the force. Additionally, the Gmail loading bar becomes a lightsaber: blue for Jedis, red for Sith.
