Google Celebrates 19 Years of Search With This Interactive Doodle

27 September 2017

Spin the wheel to play interactive browser games from the past 19 years, like a musical puzzle game celebrating Beethoven's 245th birthday, or this adorable Magic Cat Academy Halloween game from 2016.

Google's latest Doodle for its 19th anniversary is a birthday surprise spinner that takes players back to its most memorable Doodle games.

In 1997 Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, met at Stanford University and chose to come up with a system to organised the world's information. Of all the students on campus, Google's other co-founder, Sergey Brin, was randomly assigned to show Page around. This chance encounter was the happy surprise that started it all. The two then had a common goal which was to come up with a system to organise the world's information.

Named after the number "googol", which is a one followed by one hundred zeroes, the search engine marks its founding with a Doodle that depicts 19 surprises that have been launched since its inception.

There is an interesting history of the Google Doodle itself.

Named for the number "googol" (a 1 followed by one hundred zeroes), Google now serves more than 4.5 billion users in 160 countries. It is said that in 1998, Larry Page and Sergey Brin drew a stick figure behind the second "O" of Google. Thus, the Google Doodle was born.

It has also added a brand-new Snake game to its Search Funbox, which is also a part of one of these 19 wheel surprise games.

Users also like to see more new decorative Google logos in the time of cultural festivals.
