Google.com on mobile web gains voice search, surprisingly didn’t have it already

Monday, January 28th, 2019

Voice is quickly becoming a preferred method of search for many mobile users, and Google is responding by pushing voice features to as many of its platforms and services as it can. The latest example is voice search on Google.com for mobile web. The tech giant began rolling out the new feature this past week, but only for Android users so far.

If voice functionality for Google Search seems familiar, that's because it's been around on desktop web for quite a while.

Friday, November 30th, 2018

The most visited webpage on the internet is, without the shadow of a doubt, Google.com. It is thus the most interesting advertising avenue and Google is best placed to know this. However, it has kept the page's pristine white look, only supplementing it with a doodle every now and then, and new About and Store shortcuts in a few countries. But from time to time, Google uses the power of its homepage to advertise its own products.

Google Feed is now ‘Discover,’ and it’s coming to the mobile Google homepage

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Today Google announced that it's rebranding its well-known Feed — a source of news for consumers and referral traffic for providers like Android Police — under the new name "Discover." With the change in name comes the formal announcement of the redesign that's been in testing for a while now, plus more granular control on topics, and multi-language support for different types of content. By far the biggest change, though, is the addition of the new Discover to the Google homepage on mobile.

Google adds ‘About’ and ‘Store’ links to top left of homepage

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

These days, we don't see the actual 'Google.com' as much as we used to, thanks to the search functionality built into the URL bars of pretty much every browser. But after its October 4th event where the Pixel 2, Home Mini, Home Max, and many more were announced, the homepage got two new links added to the top left: About and Store.

The Google homepage was never a very densely-populated page, being about 99% just white to maintain a clean, modern look.

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Quite a lot can change in 20 years. In 1997, the iPod was still a few years away, Bill Clinton started his second term as US President, and a domain for a search index called 'Google!' was registered. In fact, today marks the 20 year anniversary of Google.com's domain registration.

If you look at the WHOIS information for the site, you can see it was created on September 15, with an IANA ID of 292.
