Google especially likes to sneak Easter eggs into its products – for example, we recently spotted a Hot Air Balloon game in the Google Play Store. Some are easy to detect, but others need to cause specific circumstances. One such Easter egg is hidden in the Smart Answer feature of Android. It saves you from being rolled up.

If you are lucky not to know what not rick-rolling it’s a scam involving the unexpected appearance of the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up”. Ironically, YouTube was recently a victim of the scam when it asked Twitter users to share their favorite videos from 2020.

The Smart Reply Easter egg starts when someone sends you a link to the official music video. As you can see in the picture above, it automatically suggests ‘Do not fall for it’ and ‘You have me’ as answers.

Mishaal Rahman recently spotted the feature on Twitter, but it seems to have been around for a while – the earliest mention we could find was more than 6 months ago by a Reddit user. So, next time you try rick-roll someone, make sure you do not send the official video.

In related news, Google has just released a teaser for the Pixel 5 Pro that you can watch here.
