Google celebrates its 19th birthday with 19 games from Doodles past

Srinagar: Search engine Google is celebrating its 19th birthday on September 27.

The search engine has almost 4.5billion users in 160 countries.

And on its 19th birthday today, Google, which made the ‘doodle’ famous and part of all our online lives, spun another surprise.

Its special doodle to mark the day features a spinning wheel to explore 19 surprises launched over 19 years in a simple and fun way through games such as snake, Pac man, tic-tac-toe and snakes and ladders. With every spin of the wheel, the player gets to play the best of Google’s Doodle games.

You can play these games anytime by searching “snake game” or just “Google birthday surprise spinner” and give the wheel a spin and try out the other Doodle games.

Over the 19 years, Google has progressed beyond just providing search results.

Apart from producing its own hardware and software, it has delved into areas like self-driving cars, synthetic intelligence & gadget mastering and Google analytics.

Google is named after the “Googol”, which is basically the number 1 followed by a hundred zeroes.

The search giant, which was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University, currently serves 4.6 billion users across 160 countries – searching for things in 123 different languages.
