Starting February 1, about a quarter of the world, including much of East Asia, will be celebrating Lunar New Year, and the beginning of the Year of the Tiger. As a tiger year, 2022 will be associated with the animal’s attributes of bravery, confidence and strong will. Previous tiger years include 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950 and 1938.
We’re celebrating Lunar New Year with a few fun features like an animated Doodle on Search and a special, firework-filled surprise when you look up “Lunar New Year.” On Android, you can choose from more than 200 new Year of the Tiger-inspired Emoji Kitchen combinations in Gboard. And don’t forget to wish Google Assistant a happy Lunar New Year and hear the response.
