To celebrate its 20th birthday today, Google has buried several fun "Easter eggs" into its search results.

For a limited time, Google will make auto-correct spelling suggestions if you search for terms from 1998 that have since been replaced by more modern lingo.

If you search for "mp3 file," for example, Google will say: "It's 2018! Did you mean: stream music?" Or, if you search for "digital pet" — like the popular Tamagatchi toy from the late '90s, Google will correct you with a more modern toy and say: "It's 2018! Did you mean: fidget spinner?"

Here's what it looks like:
