As of Oct 2, Google is now under the umbrella of Alphabet. So, what is the difference?

What's the difference between Google and Alphabet?

On 2 October, 11 years after its creation, Google officially became a subsidiary of a new holding company called Alphabet. The Google brand remains dedicated to internet-related products and services, while other projects have been spun off into their own companies under the Alphabet umbrella.
Head over to read the rest.

Thanks K.G ORPHANIDES for the info!


What do you think???

Thanks Justin. I'm interested in reading when I can because I still don't get Google and Alphabet. I mean I do in concept I guess, but could use some more insights!

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.
