Google Cancels April Fools' Day Pranks Due To COVID-19

The tech giant has cancelled all its April Fools' Day pranks in 2021, due the emergence of Covid-19.

The firm announced that it will not be doing any prank this year 2021, instead concentrate on its attempts to fight against the outbreak. Google's prank plans have been dismissed for the 2nd year in a row. The company is well known for its pranks ideas. As part of its annual April Fools' Day jokes, it has recently revealed fake plans for a Mars settlement and formed a human-animal translation application. This pranks have become a bit of a trend for all technology companies, but by 2020, many of the firms had taken a break from this things, realising how the epidemic needed a more serious attention.  According to Business Insider, Google leaders sent an email message to supervisors in March requesting them to stop the pranks in view of the damage caused by COVID-19 in the previous year. Google has requested to cancel its April Fools' Day pranks for the 2nd year in a row due to the struggles that people are facing during the shutdowns and epidemic.

Marvin Chow, Google's Vice president of international marketing, said in an e-mail that last year they planned to stop their long - standing the company’s culture of enjoying April Fools Day, to give respect for those battling with COVID-19. With most of the country still dealing with major difficulties, the company thinks that they should stop the April Fools' Day prank in 2021 also. The firm should look to seek suitable ways to bring moments of joy to their customers during the year. While the firm chooses to be sensitive to the current situations and the rising Covid19 second stage, which appears to be even worse than first, some Indian companies keep posting jokes and assume to be entirely ignorant to the disturbances outside the world.
