Google as a company has gotten so big that it needed to do some restructuring just to make sense of the myriad of things it has been doing. Google has previously announced that it will be known as Alphabet, and that has recently been effected, officially that is.
The company previously known as Google is now Alphabet. But Google will still exist, albeit as a subsidiary of Alphabet. If you’re confused, just think about Alphabet as a huge umbrella and Google is now just one of those things under this big umbrella. Google will now only work on core products like Android, Search, YouTube, Apps, Maps and Ads. The Alphabet as the mother company is responsible for innovative projects like Google Fiber, Google X, Google Ventures Calico and Life Sciences, Google Capital and Nest.
