This secret Google Sheets Pride hack will brighten up your day

Google loves an Easter Egg, and is known to hide all manner of weird and wonderful visual treats on its homepage (just try Googling 'DVD screensaver'). But the latest surprise is hiding on a platform not exactly known for its fun or indeed colourful aesthetic. We are, believe it or not, talking about Google Sheets.

In honour of Pride month, Google has added a delightful hack to help you inject a little life into your spreadsheets (now there's a sentence). Simply type PRIDE across the first five rows of a sheet, and the whole thing will turn into a colourful rainbow. Check out our best web design tools if you fancy creating a similar Easter Egg.
