New Delhi: Remember how shocking it was to see some of our beloved superheroes turn into dust with the snap of a finger in “Avengers: Infinity War”? Google is taking us down that road again with a unique search trick.
As the film, “Avengers: Endgame” releases today, Google has dropped an Avengers Easter egg that unleashes fictional supervillain Thanos’ destructive power on your web page.
To experience the trick on Google, all you have to do is search for “Thanos” on Google and click on his Infinity stones’-studded Thanos gauntlet, placed on the right-hand side of the screen in the information box.
The moment you click on the Thanos gauntlet, the magic will begin. You will see all the search results slowly fading away. The Google page will automatically move up and down as the results tabs disappear. Google also displays the reduction in the number of search results from around 87 million to 43 million.
There’s, however, a twist. Once the results disappear, click on the gauntlet again and everything goes back to how it was in the beginning, restored and intact.
Apart from this ”Avengers” themed Easter egg, Google has many more such tricks up its sleeves. ”Do a barrel roll”, ”askew”, ”zerg rush”, ”recursion” and ”anagram” are some of the words that you can search and you’ll be in for a surprise.
Avengers: Endgame released today in India. Starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson, amongst others, “Avengers: Endgame” is the 22nd film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thanos first appeared in Marvel Comics’ The Invincible Iron Man number 55 in February 1973. He made his debut in the first Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) ensemble movie The Avengers in 2012. Also known as the “Mad Titan”, Josh Brolin brought the character to life on the silver screen in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, until which point, the characters only made cameos in preceding Avengers’ movies
