    Head over to read the rest.

    Re: Understanding Google and Alphabet

    My understanding was that...


    • Google becomes a part of Alphabet.
    • Everything internet-related (search, Gmail, etc.) would stay under Google.
    • Products outside of Google (glucose-sensing contact lenses, self-driving cars, etc.) would be just under Alphabet.
