How to Play the Google Fan

Founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998, Google is the most popular search engine today.

The search engine is known to have a myriad of easter eggs.

They contain hidden messages, inside jokes, secret games, and more.

If you’ve been using Google for a while, you’ve probably encountered one.

However, easter eggs are not easy to find because they are not added to popular searches.

That said, a popular easter egg is the “Google Fan” easter egg.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to get or play the Google Fan, what is it, why is it not working, and whether the Easter egg is removed.

What is the Google Fan?

Google Fan

The Google Fan is an unofficial Google easter egg.

It’s a fan-made (no pun intended) easter egg that is not on Google.

The easter egg is a playable fan with the colors of the Google logo.

You can interact with the fan by clicking on its buttons.

Is the Google Fan easter egg removed?

No, the Google fan easter egg is not removed.

It’s an unofficial easter egg that’s fan-made.

Hence, it’s not on Google in the first place.

You can only access the easter egg by visiting external websites.

How to play the Google Fan

How to play the Google Fan:

  1. Go to Google.com.
  2. Search for “Google Fan”.
  3. Click on the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button.
  4. Interact with the Google Fan’s buttons.

To play the Google Fan, you need to search for “Google Fan” on Google and click on the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button.

After you’ve clicked on the button, you’ll be redirected to a website and the easter egg will start.

Alternatively, you can play the game here: https://elgoog.im/google-fan/.

The website contains a fan that has the colors of the Google logo.

The fan has three buttons that you can push—the power button, the spin button, and the speed button.

Click on the power button to turn on the fan, click on the spin button for the fan to spin, and click on the speed button to increase the fan’s speed.

If you push all three buttons, an “I’m Feeling Crazy” button will appear.

When you click on the button, the fan will repeatedly rotate 360 degrees.

Why is Google Fan not working?

The Google Fan is not working because it’s not an official easter egg.

You can only access the easter egg on external websites.

The only website that has the fan is Elgoog.

On websites like Elgoog, they create and restore Google easter eggs.
