Search engine technology, online advertising, cloud computing, computer software, quantum computing, e-commerce, artificial intelligence, and consumer electronics are the main areas of interest for Google LLC, an American multinational technology firm.
Over the following few years, Google attracted the interest of Silicon Valley investors in addition to the academic community. Google Inc. was founded when Andy Bechtolsheim, a co-founder of Sun, sent Larry and Sergey a $100,000 cheque in August 1998. The newly formed company upgraded from the dorms to their first office with the help of this investment, which was a garage in the Menlo Park, California, suburb owned by Susan Wojcicki (employee #16 and current CEO of YouTube). The setting for those early mornings and late nights included clunky desktop computers, a ping pong table, and a vivid blue carpet. (Today, the custom of keeping things colourful is still practised.)
Former Stanford University students Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown founded Snapchat. It is well-known for taking social networking in a new, mobile-first direction and emphasising user engagement with augmented reality objects and virtual stickers. Snapchat had 293 million daily active users as of July 2021, up 23% from the previous year. More than four billion Snaps are sent daily on average. Snapchat is popular among young people, especially those under the age of 16, which raises a lot of privacy issues for parents.
Initially called BackRub. Google is a search engine that was created in 1996 as a research project at Stanford University by Sergey Brin and Larry Page to locate files on the Internet. Later, Larry and Sergey felt that the name of their search engine needed to change, so they chose Google, a play on the word "googol." The business's main office is in Mountain View, California.
The constant pursuit of better solutions remains at the centre of everything we do. Today, Google produces hundreds of products, like YouTube, Android, Gmail, and, of course, Google Search, that are used by billions of people worldwide. Our enthusiasm for creating technology for everyone has remained with us from the dorm room to the garage and even to the present day, despite the removal of the Lego servers and the addition of a few more corporate dogs.
Web results are any stuff that Google pulls from the internet, including web pages, photographs, videos, news articles, and other content.
Google writes that their new logo is intended to reflect "this reality and [show you] when the magic of Google is working for you, even on the tiniest screens." Making the logo look good on small screens seems to have been the main consideration.
