And you should start with the most important thing: what does Google do and what does it give to the world? Of course, the most important thing is the Google search engine. Without it, users around the world will not be able to efficiently and quickly find the information they need. They will start looking for an alternative to the search engine. Bing and other similar little-known search engines may replace it, and in some countries, local options similar to Yandex search will become popular.
For Russia, the lack of Google search should not become a very big problem. by the way, Yandex search appeared much earlier than Google’s solution on the world wide web.
Gmail will stop working. Chaos will begin, because many people can store important information in their emails, which can significantly affect the financial condition of the account owner. Millions of people will lose important information, and with it billions of dollars. Everyone knows that information is the most expensive resource in the world.
To replace Gmail in Russia, you can get mail from Mail.ru or Yandex. In other countries also there is certainly your local postal services. It is likely that Microsoft with its services, including mail, can take over this area.
Everyone knows that YouTube belongs to Google. Millions of people around the world earn a lot of money using this platform. And the remaining millions are active viewers and use YouTube As a good platform for entertainment and training. This service can now be called the center of entertainment on the Internet. Having lost it, the world Network will become noticeably more boring. In addition, Google uses a smart feed and recommendations based on neural networks, it is unlikely that when alternatives appear, we will be offered the same quality video hosting. The only good alternative is Vimeo.
Millions of sites around the world will disappear when Google disappears, because they work on Google’s Angular framework. They will stop displaying the normal font because they use free Google Fonts. Many sites use the company’s cloud services, Google servers, and other tools in one way or another. The disappearance of the giant can ruin the correct operation of about 30% of sites in the world. Developers will lose many tools, including TensorFlow (neural network library). We will lose the Chrome browser, but we will still have Chromium, which is the Open Source browser that Chrome uses. Consumers will not be left without Android phones, since this is also an Open Source project. But at the same time, we will lose Google services on smartphones, including Google Play. Google’s driverless car project will disappear, but it is technically worse than the Yandex project, so there will be no special problems here.
Laptops running Chrome OS will no longer be sold on store shelves, but this is still a small loss. There may be a lot to lose for Indians who use the Internet, distributed using Google balloons.
We will also lose the best map service in the world, Google Maps. In Russia, of course, there are Yandex Maps, and this is good. Google has huge datasets with various data that it received all the time through its services. Many projects have been created on the basis of these datasets, and their disappearance may affect the projects of all companies in the world to some extent. We will lose the Google Translate service — it is the only normally working speech and text translator. Worthy alternatives to it have not yet been invented.
Smartwatches on Android Wear will no longer be enabled, as will multimedia centers on Android Auto. Millions of companies will lose Google as a way to promote their products through the AdSense project. This will lead to a drop in sales and a decrease in the growth rate of the global economy. Owners of Google Pixel smartphones will be left without their favorite gadgets.
As you can see, the disappearance of Google will have a negative impact on the entire global economy. Losses can reach hundreds of billions of dollars. How do you imagine Google disappearing? Share your vision in the comments and don’t forget to read the news in our Telegram chat.
