Google is drenching in its 20th Birthday celebration! While the exact date of launching the company is not even known by the founders, Google Inc. was organised on September 4. However, Google celebrates its birthday on September 27 with an annual celebration doodle. 


Founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998, Google has its headquarters in California. It currently offers more than a hundred services and tools to make life easier. Google has always aimed towards making information accessible and useful. Continuously pushing boundaries and bettering itself, it has always been a user's company. Google also celebrated 10 years of launching the web browser, Google Chrome, on September 2.


Keeping up with its policy of making the user interface easier, Google, as part of the celebration will be introducing a number of changes in its user interface.

Google Images will be enhanced. It would display content according to new algorithms. It would probably list recipes, tips, and DIYs too. Additionally, it would be integrated with Google Lens, making the feed much more customized. Reportedly, Google will also be introducing a personalized feed feature, Discover. This would show results according to the user preferences which might be based according to location, search history, etc.

These modifications will reportedly change the way we have been seeing the web search results on Google. The format in which the search results are viewed will undergo some major modifications, making it akin to the social media. This means we can expect seeing new elements like more photos, vertical videos, stories and refreshed news feed along with the search results.

The aim behind unrolling these changes is to amp up the website. These would make the experience of any user much more customized. Visuals will be added along with the usual links displayed on search results. The changes could be expected to roll out gradually, giving time to the user to get used to the new designs.
