Google has announced that their popular ‘Doodles’ will soon be available on various smartphones and mobile operating systems. The very first Google Doodle was way back in 1998, Sergey Brin and Larry Page put the Doodle up to show they were at the Burning Man festival – look how far it’s come since then.

There have been a few Doodles in the past that have featured on mobiles, the first was for the 2008 Olympics, since then mobile Doodles have been few and far between so today’s welcome announcement will mean smartphone owners will be able to see the Doodle of a day.

Google announced “Today, we’re happy to announce that we’re bringing more doodles to your phone”.

Google Doodles on your Smartphone, cool or not?

Software Engineer at Google , Steve Kanefsky said: “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.”

The rollout includes Android devices with 2.0 OS and above and iPhone users with at least iOS 3.0 on their phones. So now users will be able to enjoy new Doodles like the recent dots or Halloween specials – brilliant.
