It takes a little bit of effort to find the “Bells and Whistles” hidden menu in Google Mobile but it’s here. When you launch the Google iPhone app and go to settings, you’ll see a few options to configure the app. While it may not look like there is anything below the “About” selection, swipe your finger upward to go below. Keep swiping for a while and you will see the secret menu.

So, what is so cool about these bells and whistles? Not much to be honnest… You can replace the default sounds with chicken or monkey noises. You can also change the color of the Google Mobile theme and see a live waveform when you talk.

There is one nice feature though: the “open links in app” option. I guess this should have been there in the first place but later is better than never as we say in French.
