Google Doodles to become smartphone compatible
Google brings much loved Doodles to mobile platforms
Google is to make its popular Google Doodles compatible with smartphone browsers the internet search giant has announced.
Whilst there have been a select number of mobile friendly doodles to date kicking off with the celebration of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the vast majority of Doodles are currently limited to desktop browsers and have become a hit with users since their arrival in 1998 in a creation crafted by the site’s founders.
"Today, we’re happy to announce that we’re bringing more doodles to your phone" declared Google.
Steve Kanefsky, Software Engineer at Google added: "While we’ve had oodles of Google doodles on our desktop homepage since Larry and Sergey created our very first in 1998, doodles on our mobile homepage have been few and far between.”
Smartphone users keen to fill their handsets with some Doodled Google idents will need an Apple iPhone running iOS version 3.0 or above or an Android powered device filled with 2.0 or later.
