Google added a Valentine’s Day Easter egg (wait, what?) to the Play Music service today. The new “fireplace visualizer” is available through the “labs” settings, where all experimental features start out. Turning it on will allow you to use your Chromcast to put a crackling fireplace on your TV while your music plays. Why? Because there’s nothing better to symbolize your love than a fake flame. Wait…

Once you’ve enabled the feature in the “labs” settings page, casting music from any of your mobile devices or the web will automatically display the fireplace on your TV instead of the usual album artwork.
