Watch Google’s “2016 Year In Search” Review


The famous year in review from Google, with news coverage of some of the world’s most inspiring and shocking stories, this is Google’s “Year in Search” video for 2016. Starting slightly on the darker side, the film manages to find the brighter side of the world and highlights a message of hope for the future.

When looking at things on a global scale, Google only lists 9 major categories — general searches, news, people, consumer tech, sporting events, losses, movies, musicians, and TV shows. When looking at results on a country-by-country basis, things get much more specific.

As expected, some of the top results from this year include Pokemon Go, Donald Trump, the Election, the Olympics, and of course, all of the celebrity losses over the course of this year. Several major movies and TV shows also ranked high on Google, as did major consumer product releases like the iPhone 7 and Google Pixel.
