Google celebrates its 20th Anniversary with animated doodle
By Staff on Thursday, September 27, 2018
Today marks Google’s 20th anniversary. To celebrate, the tech giant has created its own special animated Google doodle that chronicles some of the most popular search trends of the last two decades.
The Doodle animates some of the most popular search terms in multiple languages, from queries about Y2K to the translation for “love.” But this is only one element of Google’s 20th celebrations.
Google is also scattering fun ‘Easter eggs’ amongst its assets. A number of circa 1998-style phrases inputted into the search engine will now prompt the suggestion “It’s 2018! Did you mean?…” before giving the modern equivalent, showing just how far we’ve come in the last 20 years.
There are 17 search terms that have been found so far which give the following alternative suggestions:
|mp3 file||stream music|
|watch a dvd||streaming subscription|
|gettin’ jiggy wit it||floss dance|
|page me||New phone, who dis?|
|butterfly clip styles||top knot|
|soccer world champions 1998||soccer world champions 2018|
|chat room||text the group|
|how to tell someone you like them||swipe right|
|low-rider pants||how to style high-waisted pants|
|digital pet||fidget spinner|
|what is Y2K?||how does cryptocurrency work?|
|screen name||social handle|
Happy Birthday Google!
