Google today, i.e 27'september'2018, turned 20 and celebrated it with a nostalgic video feature of interesting searches through the years - from holidays, events, achievements and people to the best dance moves, food to eat, planets and languages. Google has answered all our queries since it came into being in 1998 as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, both PhD students at the Stanford University, US.
The new search engine had a bold mission to organise the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Over the years it changed drastically - going from being a simple search engine to a global tech titan and offering searches in more than 150 languages in over 190 countries - though there has been one thing that has remained constant from the initial years: the homepage doodle.
It had taken two years for Google Doodles to get animated. On October 31, 2000, the first Doodle with motion graphics arrived to celebrate Halloween. The O's in the logo were replaced by tiny jack-o'-lanterns, and a spider dangled between the 'L' and 'E'.
On November 13, 2009, it celebrated the discovery of water on Moon, on August 11, 2017, it celebrated 44 years of the birth of Hip-Hop. Going country specific, it has over the years celebrated national and cultural icons.
