On September 27, 1998, two PhD students at Stanford University, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, launched a new search engine called Google. Their goal was to create a better way to organize and access the world's information.
Google quickly became the most popular search engine in the world, and the company has since expanded into many other areas, including email, cloud computing, hardware, and artificial intelligence.
Google has had a profound impact on the world, and it is difficult to imagine life without its products and services. Here is a look at Google's journey over the past 25 years, and a few of its latest and greatest innovations:
Google's early years were focused on improving its search engine. The company introduced a number of new features, such as PageRank, which ranked websites based on the number and quality of other websites that linked to them. This made Google's search results more relevant and accurate than those of its competitors.
In 2004, Google launched Gmail, a free web-based email service. Gmail was a game-changer in the email industry, with features such as large storage capacity, powerful search, and spam filtering.
In 2006, Google acquired YouTube, a video-sharing website. YouTube has become one of the most popular websites in the world, with over 2 billion active users.
In 2011, Google launched Google Drive, a cloud storage service. Google Drive allows users to store their files online and access them from anywhere.
In 2012, Google launched Google Assistant, a virtual assistant that can be used to control devices, answer questions, and perform tasks. Google Assistant is now available on a wide range of devices, including smartphones, smart speakers, and smart displays.
In 2015, Google launched Google Pixel, its own line of smartphones. Google Pixel phones are known for their excellent cameras and clean software experience.
In 2016, Google launched Google Cloud Platform, a suite of cloud computing services. Google Cloud Platform is used by businesses of all sizes to run their applications and store their data.
