Wordle Easter egg on Google: Know how to access

On Google, as you search for “Wordle”, the Easter egg will appear on the top-left corner of the search result page. The Google logo will be replaced by an animated GIF consisting of the six-letter word.

The words that you will see on the GIF will come in different boxes-grey, yellow, green, inspired by Wordle. As per the rule of the game (Wordle), the grey boxes show letters that are not part of the day’s secret word while yellow boxes represent letters which are part of the game but are not placed in the right order. Green boxes show that the letters are placed correctly in order.

Players should take note of the fact that Wordle uses American English spellings. So there are certain words you might not even consider, such as “favor”, “color”, etc., that may have the right answers.

Wordle: Where did the game come from?

Wordle was started by Josh Wardle for him and his partner, who loves word games. Once the two played the game, he shared it with some relatives, who became obsessed with it. It was then that Wardle (yes, the game is a word play on his name!) opened it up to the rest of the world. In the beginning of November, about 90 people played this game and by the time January rolled around, more than 3 lakh people were already a fan of it.
