Google is preparing for a major change in the coming months, including a name change for the company. Google plans to revamp its structure and be known as a holding company named Alphabet Inc. While Google name has become very well known it has even entered the vernacular as a verb (i.e. Just “google” it), the moniker no longer fully describes everything the company does. In addition to the popular search engine, Google owns Android, YouTube, Nest, Calico, and a host of other companies. It’s a virtual alphabet soup, which may be why its high-ups settled on Alphabet as a new name. Also, it will be harder for the public – and investors – to pigeonhole the versatile company as solely a web-based operation.
