Did you Know Google changed its Doodle?
On October 31st, 2023 Google revealed an all-new Google Doodle to mark the annual celebration of Halloween. Artist Helen Kim created the new doodle in collaboration with Google’s team.
Reason for changing Google’s Doodle
The new Google Doodle was intended to be a playful holiday representation. It showcases a handful of fun and spooky characters. It includes a witch riding her broomstick among the clouds, a glowing jack-o-lantern, a bat flying around a full moon, an owl perched atop a tree, and a towering haunted castle in the sky.
Representation Of Google’s new Doodle
The doodle sticks closely to classic depictions of the holiday in terms of character design and color palette, with bright oranges, reds, and yellows used to create a festive atmosphere. The background features the Google wordmark in bubble letters, encircled by a trail of bats.
Reaction Of Public to Google’s new Doodle
The new Google Doodle was well-received by the public. It gave users a fun reminder of the holiday, while still being subtle enough that it didn’t take over the entire search page. It also marks the first time Google has changed its Doodle to celebrate Halloween, although individual countries’ offices have created their own Halloween-inspired Doodles in previous years.
Halloween 2023 New Features
In addition to the Doodle, Google also took measures to enhance the Halloween of 2023 experience for its users by adding filters and other features to its popular apps. For example, Google Photos now has filters that make users look like witches, werewolves, zombies, and ghosts.
Google’s decision to change its Doodle for Halloween 2023 shows that the company is committed to observing and celebrating important cultural holidays. It’s also a reminder that Google is continuing to innovate in order to provide the best possible user experience.
