Google Birthday Cake Doodle for 23rd birthday Celebration

Google will celebrate its 23rd birthday on Monday by releasing a new Doodle. The animated Doodle depicts a layered slice of cake with rainbow sprinkles and the number 23 inscribed on the top of the cake layer. With a glowing green birthday candle in place of the “L” in “Google.” a floating version of the search giant’s name, which is also covered in frosting and sprinkles, is visible above the cake.

Google was officially created on September 4, 1998, by Sergey Brin and Larry Page, who also were co-founders. In 1997, Brin, who was a PhD student at Stanford University at the time, was entrusted with showing Page about the university grounds. The following year, in their dorms, the pair worked together to create the first version of Google’s search engine.

As a result, Sundar Pichai, the current CEO of Google and its parent company, Alphabet, ascended to the position in 2015.

Since those early days, Google has evolved to become one of the world’s largest technology corporations, with operations in over 200 countries. As a result of its market dominance, the company has been under heightened scrutiny from legislators, regulators, and even its own workers. In July, a coalition of state attorneys from 36 different states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit against Google, alleging that the company’s Play store for Android apps violated antitrust rules. Over the past few years, Google employees have demonstrated in the streets and accused the company’s upper management of retaliating against some of its employees. Employees at Google and Alphabet have also banded together to ensure that they have a “meaningful say” in company decisions.
