Google Translate’s beatboxing Easter egg

Many of you will be familiar with Google’s online translation service, Google Translate.

 

Normally, when you hover over the speaker icon after tying in some text, it says listen:

 

translate-listen-445

 

Now, let’s try entering a different phrase. You might notice something strange happens:

 

kkkkkkkkkk pv zk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk pv zk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk zk kkkkkkkkkk pv zk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk pv zk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk bschk zk kkkkkkkkkk

 

Instead of saying listen, it now says “beatbox”:

 

translate-beatbox-445

 

In fact, you can enter kkkkkkkkkk pv zk and bschk in any combination, then click the beatbox button, and Google will beatbox it for you.
