Google is celebrating its 25th birthday, and the company is making sure it’s a memorable one. Founded in 1998, Google has become a household name and one of the biggest tech companies in the world. To mark this milestone, Google has added some special features and surprises across its products.
If you search for “happy birthday” on Google’s products, including search, hum to search, and translate, you will be greeted with confetti raining down on your screen. It’s a fun and festive way for Google to celebrate its birthday with its users.
In addition to the interactive confetti, Google has also created a special Google Doodle for its birthday. Google Doodles are temporary alterations of Google’s logo that are created for different holidays, events, or to honor notable individuals. The birthday Google Doodle showcases Google’s logo evolution, starting from its first-ever logo to its current iteration, with a special 25th birthday logo at the end.
The first Google Doodle was created not long after Google’s inception in 1998. It featured a stick man over the search engine’s logo and was designed when the co-founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, took time off to attend the Burning Man Festival. Since then, there have been over 5,000 unique Google Doodles created, celebrating everything from Valentine’s Day to the anniversary of the ice cream sundae.
Google’s birthday is officially on September 27th. However, the company started celebrating its anniversary on this date in 2005. Initially incorporated on September 4, 1998, Google decided to shift the celebration to September 27th after announcing changes to how pages were indexed.
Google’s 25th birthday is a momentous occasion for the company and its users. It’s a reminder of how far Google has come since its humble beginnings as a search engine. Today, Google provides essential services and products that have become an integral part of our daily lives.
As we celebrate Google’s 25th birthday, it’s also worth noting the impact the company has had on our world. From revolutionizing the way we search for information to providing tools like Google Docs and Google Maps, Google has transformed the way we navigate and interact with the digital landscape.
