For almost as long as Google has been around, it's livened up its barebones search page with artwork that draws attention to notable people, events, holidays and anniversaries. Google Doodles have celebrated, among many other things, Pac-Man's anniversary, Copernicus' birthday, Mother's Day and the World Cup, as well as reminding us of lesser-known real-world heroes.

Google is phasing out the old Voice Search in favor of Assistant

Google is phasing out the old Voice Search in favor of Assistant The familiar microphone icon in Google's search bar might soon be a thing of the past, according to some recent changes spotted by 9 to 5 Google. On some phones, Google's old-school "Voice Search," with the prompt "Say 'Hey Google,'" has been replaced by the four-dot Assistant logo and the term "Ask your Assistant." As a reminder, that's just like the one at the bottom of Google's Pixel launcher. It still opens the same interface as before, but the search is now performed by Assistant and displays the results in a slide-up card.

Every year, Google hosts a competition that asks students K-12 to submit a themed Doodle . In addition to showcasing last year’s winner on Google .com, the search engine today is kicking off the 11th Doodle for Google by revealing 2019’s theme.

After 130,000 submissions and millions of votes, Wisconsin 12th grader Sabrina Brady was named the 2013 U.S. Doodle 4 Google National Winner.

The National Doodle for Google contest started in 2008, and this year's finalists included images of magic kites, space travel, comic books and farming, in addition to Popo's message of family.

Popo says she's been interested in art since she was 3 but was suffering from a "massive art block" during her senior year of high school. She was inspired to honor her mother as the clock was ticking away on submitting her art.

"I came up with the idea at the last minute, actually the day of the deadline," she said. "I looked at the photograph of my mother (the real version that inspired the drawing) and thought, 'Hey, why don't I reverse it?' I wanted to focus more on a message of helping out my awesome mother more than anything else."

Popo's Doodle will be displayed on Google.com for one day, and she'll get a $30,000 college scholarship and a trip to Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California. Popo, who was valedictorian of Arabia Mountain High School in DeKalb County, Georgia, says her interests lie in literature and learning more about herself.

Light version of the Google app to be released worldwide.
Following a conclusive testing phase in India and Indonesia, Google Go, the "light" version of the essential mobile search app, will finally freely available worldwide. At just 7MB in size, the app uses 40% less data than the Google's classic Search app. This makes it ideal for older devices, or those with little storage. The only minimum spec is that the device runs Android Lollipop (5.0) or above. The stripped-back app nonetheless features a number of useful features and can handle voice queries. To date, Google Go has been downloaded over 100 million times.
