The typically vibrant company logo of Google has been changed to a gray version as a respect to Queen Elizabeth II.
While Queen Elizabeth II is receiving condolences from all over the world for being the longest-reigning monarch in British history, Google has chosen to pay her respect subtly. Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet, expressed his personal condolences to Her Majesty on Twitter, which prompted this move.
Pichai likely spoke on behalf of Google when he expressed condolences to the British people as well as the rest of the world upon hearing of the death of the British head of state.
The traditional bright Google homepage logo has frequently been converted to grayscale in the past, so this is not the first time a small tribute has been given. The customary period for such an homage has been Memorial Day, but this year there were more decorative components, such as long-headed poppies. This terrible news is not marked by any animated components or other adjustments.
The Google logo has been fully grayed out across all platforms, including the Discover feed that can be viewed on particular Android smartphones. Given the widespread distribution of this news, we predict that a larger tribute to Queen Elizabeth II will likely appear in the typical Google Doodle format very soon.
Although the exact duration of this transformation is unknown, it will almost definitely only last a short while in most places. It is possible, though unlikely, that this honor for Queen Elizabeth will also be extended throughout the United Kingdom.
