In celebration of Google's 20th-anniversary, the tech company is taking users down memory lane with a new doodle that celebrates 20 years of the iconic search engine. Highlighting major world events from the past, this doodle offers up a wonderful sense of nostalgia as historical events are portrayed in the signature style of Google doodles. Google's 20th-anniversary doodle is also available on YouTube so users can relive the nostalgia over-and-over again for years to come once it leaves the main Google page.

Featuring 17 unique "easter eggs," this celebratory doodle implements a host of tech innovations and memes alongside historic events. These innovations and memes include the rise of the streaming service, MP3 files, "new phone, who dis?", the evolution of chat rooms to group texts, and the meteoric rise of the GIF format in internet culture.
