The doodle went live on Google's homepage across multiple regions as soon as the clock struck 12 on Thursday to show December 31, the last day of the year.
The Google holiday doodle has got a giant candy, captioned “2021”, that looks ready to pop as soon as the clock strikes midnight on December 31 to welcome in the New Year 2022.
The other letters of the word ‘Google’ were also seen to be colourfully decorated in the doodle with jacklights.
The Google Doodle did not come with many descriptions. Instead, the search engine is relying on its users to appreciate the unambiguous and straightforward design of the doodle to usher in the new year.
“That's a wrap for 2021 – Happy New Year's Eve!” wrote Google on its doodles' archive documenting the new design.
It is evident from the archive that Google invested in much more unique and elaborate designs for New Year's Eve doodles before this. However, the design remains quite plain this time.
