Go on and tap on the screen as much as you like to keep filling it with Holi colors. When you are done or want to start over again, Tap on the water-drop icon that appears on the top. This will ‘wash’ the screen of all colors, bringing you back to your search results. You may now start clicking on links and use the search engine. Alternatively, you can also tap on the color palettes again to splash away yet again.
Google is also encouraging people to share their Holi screens with the company. Add a #HappyHoli hashtag to share your colored Google screen with others on social media. Note that the trick works with both mobile and desktop devices. You can get the feature anywhere irrespective of the device you’re using. Just open the Google page or the Search application.
