Google is ringing in its 25th birthday with a series of special Easter eggs and a customized Google Doodle. This milestone celebration includes a range of surprises for users, particularly those who search “happy birthday” on Wednesday. Among the featured Easter eggs are Google’s popular products such as search, hum to search, and translate.
To make the birthday festivities even more exciting, confetti will shower down across the screen when users trigger the special Easter eggs. It’s a small but delightful touch that adds to the overall celebratory atmosphere.
One of the highlights of Google’s birthday celebration is the creation of a unique Google Doodle. This special Doodle showcases the evolution of the Google logo over the past quarter-century. It’s a fascinating visual representation of the brand’s transformation and growth.
Interestingly, the first-ever Google Doodle was created back in 1998 during the Burning Man Festival by co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Since then, over 5,000 diverse Google Doodles have been designed, each commemorating different holidays and events. Behind the creation of these captivating Doodles is a team of talented engineers and illustrators known as doodlers.
While Google was officially incorporated on September 4, 1998, the company started celebrating its anniversary on September 27 in 2005 due to a change in how pages were indexed by the search engine. This decision allowed for a more cohesive and streamlined celebration.
But the birthday surprises don’t stop there. In addition to the anniversary celebrations, Google Maps has something to offer as well. The popular navigation platform now provides travel tips to users, even when they’re offline. This means that even without Wi-Fi, users can navigate and learn about new places with ease.
As Google marks its 25th birthday, these special Easter eggs and the commemorative Google Doodle serve as reminders of the company’s innovation and growth over the years. With its continued commitment to enhancing user experience and expanding its services, Google shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
