Nexus Q has Magic 8 Ball mode

Google appears to have packed an Easter egg into its recently revealed Nexus Q social media streaming device. Google I/O attendee Adrian Perez has posted images to his Google+ account revealing that the spherical media streamer has a "Magic 8 Ball" mode that is activated using the Nexus Q app.

When a user taps repeatedly on the Nexus Q's image in the dedicated Android app, a screen appears with the text "Have a dilemma? Ask the Q." The user can then use the voice input on a connected device to ask questions, and the Q give responses reminiscent of those found in the well-known Magic 8 Ball novelty toy.

Google is well-known for packing similar treats into its software and services, as well as for its yearly April Fool's jokes.
