Google was formally created on September 4, 1998, by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Together they worked to create a search engine that used links to determine the importance of individual pages within the Internet. Google as a search engine organizes the world’s information to make it universally accessible and useful.
The products that Google makes include webmail, an internet search engine, cloud storage, a calendar, and different software. Other of Google’s products include robot assistants, a home video monitoring system, high-speed internet, and laptop computers.

Google is also known as Alphabet because Google renamed itself as Alphabet in 2015 and made Google a subsidiary. The renaming of Google allowed the company to extend its domain outside of internet search to become a technology conglomerate. This also lets Google account for the various income streams from all its subsidiaries.
