25 Years of Google

Have you seen today’s Google Doodle? The trailblazing brainchild of two visionaries, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, is celebrating its monumental 25th anniversary today. Besides being the most popular search engine, Google is known to all as the creative genius behind Android, the omnipotent Search, the mesmerising Pixel phones, and the indispensable Workspace services.

Google was born in a cluttered Stanford University dorm room in 1998 as a small research project that aimed to organise a vast amount of information on the Internet. Little did Page and Brin know that their endeavour would soon reshape the digital landscape. Fast forward to today, we can’t survive a day without searching for something on Google.

Google’s 25-year journey is a testament to human ingenuity and the power of technology to transform our lives. From a humble search engine to a global tech giant, Google has introduced countless products and services that have reshaped how we live, work, and play in the digital age. Let’s have a brief look at them.

Google Search

Google is the most loved and preferred search engine. It’s not just a tool; it’s a window to the world. It has revolutionised how we access information, granting us the ability to learn, discover, and explore with unprecedented ease. The algorithm’s evolution has been a relentless pursuit of relevance, delivering precise results amidst the ever-expanding sea of data.


In 2004, to make our lives easier, Google gifted us with Gmail. It was an email service that wasn’t just a mode of communication; it was an ecosystem. With generous storage space, intuitive features, and a brilliant spam filter, Gmail became the undisputed leader in email services. Today, for numerous people, Gmail is a gateway to productivity and organisation.

Google Maps

Losing your way became a thing of the past when Google Maps made its debut in 2005. It turned every smartphone into a GPS device, guiding us through labyrinthine city streets, less-explored shortcuts, and uncharted territories. Whether you’re exploring the Grand Canyon or finding your way home, Google Maps is your trusty cartographer.


Google’s acquisition of YouTube in 2006 transformed how we consume video content. From viral cat videos to in-depth tutorials, YouTube has become an integral part of our entertainment and education. With features like getting your channel monetised, YouTube has become a resourceful platform for content creators.

Android – The Mobile Revolution

In 2007, Google ventured into the mobile realm with Android and the rest of history. Today, it powers billions of smartphones worldwide. Its open-source nature has fostered innovation, creating a diverse ecosystem of devices and applications. Android changed the whole landscape of the tech world by revolutionising how we connect, work, and play on the go.

Google Chrome

With the introduction of Google Chrome in 2008, browsing the web became a whole lot faster and more efficient. Chrome’s minimalist design and lightning-fast performance have made it the browser of choice for millions. It is one of the safest and most secure browsers available on the market today.

Google Drive

In 2012, Google Drive made our digital lives simpler by offering storage and collaboration tools in the cloud. It wasn’t just a place to store files; it was a platform for teams to work together seamlessly, transforming the way we manage and share information.

Google Photos

Launched in 2015, Google Photos became our digital photo album. Its ability to store, organise, and search through an unlimited number of photos made it a cherished tool for preserving memories. With innovative features and edits, Google Photos always makes sure to bring back a smile on your face.

Google Assistant

With the arrival of Google Assistant in 2016, the future of AI-powered personal assistants became a reality. It’s not just about answering questions; it’s about anticipating your needs, controlling your smart home, and making your life easier, one voice command at a time.

Google Earth

Google Earth, launched in 2005, brought the entire world to our screens. It’s a tool for exploration, education, and understanding the planet we call home. Google Earth takes satellite pics, snaps from the sky, and data wizardry and slaps it onto a 3D Earth. You can play detective and check out cities and landscapes from every possible angle.

What lies ahead in the next 25 years of Google’s journey? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: Google will continue to lead the way in innovation, shaping the future of technology and our digital world. Cheers to the next chapter in the Google Odyssey!
