Google is celebrating its 22nd birthday with this doodle Collected

Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998

Search engine giant Google, known for celebrating special occasions with a doodle, on Sunday commemorated its 22nd birthday with an animated illustration. 

Founded in September 1998, the technology company was a brainchild of Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were PhD students at the Stanford University in California, reports The Indian Express.

The Google Doodle for Google’s 22nd birthday features a smiling letter ‘G’ sitting in front of a laptop with a cake and several presents by its side while video calling its friends, that is the remaining letters “oogle.” 

The doodle, clearly, has been designed keeping in mind the current situation due to the coronavirus pandemic, where people have been forced to stay indoors and depend on technology to communicate.

The term ‘Google’ has been derived from the mathematical term “googol,” a number equivalent to 10 raised to the power of 100 and was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary as a verb in 2006.

On its doodle page, Google gave details about the term ‘googol’ and said, “The now world-famous moniker is a play on a mathematical term that arose out of an unassuming stroll around the year 1920.
