* ScrappyMechanic: Google indexes [[{{Imageboards}} 4chan]] threads even though, due to 4chan's thread-purging system, most threads in search results are 404 errors, and just to add salt to the wound, Google never caches 4chan results.

* BaseBreaker: The new logo introduced September 2015. Some love it, some like the old one better, some say it'll take some time getting used to, and some don't really care.

* DudeNotFunny: For AprilFoolsDay 2016, they added a feature to Gmail which allowed you to do a MicDrop on a conversation, courtesy of the WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}. Since the button that does this was in the same place as the "Send and Archive" button, many people accidentally added the Mic Drop to serious emails, and there have been stories of people being ''fired'' over it. It also irreversibly muted all replies, [[FromBadToWorse and there was also a bug that caused it to sometimes happen on emails where the "Drop Mic" button hadn't been pressed.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: On AprilFoolsDay in 2014, Google announced that Franchise/{{Pokemon}} had taken up residence in Google Maps and challenged users to go catch 'em all using their map app. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YMD6xELI_k Their promotional video is almost prophetic frame by frame]]. In 2016, catching Pokémon in the real world became a reality with ''VideoGame/PokemonGo''. Even better is that the one of the developers, Niantic Labs, started off from Google before becoming independent. It was later revealed in a [[http://nintendoeverything.com/niantic-delves-more-into-the-origins-of-pokemon-go/ Famitsu interview with Niantic Labs]] that they actually got the idea from that April Fool's joke.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Google Earth as of recent updates (if you have the most recent browser),, where there are [[TheWorldIsJustAwesome beautiful renders of our planets]], complete if zoomed out, you will see bright city lights seen when it is nighttime on a part of the world, or the SceneryPorn of sunlit areas. Not to mention how well done the satellite view of places close up and the [[ArtEvolution improving]] 3D rendering of mountains, or skyscrapers in big cities.

** The new version of Google Mail is especially hated. The compose feature got rid of a lot of features that professional users rely on.

** In 2011, Google Japan, instead of their usual AprilFoolsDay joke, showed never-before-seen drawings from its 2009 Google Doodle competition, themed "What I Love About Japan" drawn by Japanese schoolchildren.



* SidetrackedByTheGoldenSaucer: Google's ''PacMan'' "logo" (their first interactive Google Doodle, coinciding with [[MilestoneCelebration Pac-Man's 30th anniversary]]) managed to cause this on the day it was released (spicing up a relatively boring webpage in the process that's typically used for web-searching), to the tune of '''[[http://blog.rescuetime.com/2010/05/24/the-tragic-cost-of-google-pac-man-4-82-million-hours/ approximately 4,819,352 hours of lost time, with a cost of $120,483,800.]]''' And said Google Doodle remains in playable form [[http://www.google.com/pacman/ here]].

** The Google Doodle commemorating the [[MilestoneCelebration 50th anniversary]] of ''Series/DoctorWho'', like the above mentioned''VideoGame/PacMan'' doodle, was made into a flash game. And it was '''glorious'''.
