Google. You鈥檝e heard of it, right? It appears the Internet tech giant is having somewhat of an identity crisis and is looking to change its name and restructure. The things you can do when you鈥檙e one of the most well-known companies in the world. That鈥檚 what essentially happened today when Google CEO Larry Page uploaded a post to Google鈥檚 Blog introducing its new company Alphabet.

Confused? From the lone blog post explaining what鈥檚 going down, this is what we gathered: Google will be 鈥渟limmed down鈥 to focus on core Internet businesses while Alphabet will be the umbrella name for the company as a whole and will invest in far out ideas like 鈥淟ife Sciences (that works on the glucose-sensing contact lens) and Calico (focused on longevity).鈥 And those self-driving cars. This restructuring means the current Google CEO, Larry Page, will transition into the CEO of Alphabet while Google cofounder Sergey Brin will act as Alphabet鈥檚 President and former product chief Sundar Pichai will become Google鈥檚 new CEO. Larry explained that Alphabet is basically 鈥渁 collection of companies.鈥 The largest of which, of course, is Google. The co鈥檚 business model will aim to have a 鈥渟trong CEO who runs each business鈥 at its core. When you think of all the (formerly) Google-owned companies like Android, YouTube, Hangouts, Blogger etcccc Larry actually makes a lot of sense.

And just like that we鈥檙e unsure whether to call the Google we know鈥 well, Google anymore. This Quartz cheat sheet of Google/Alphabet companies (from A[ndroid] to Z[agat]) just might help you wrap your head around this one. And, yes, it looks like 鈥淕oogle鈥 is still an acceptable verb.
