Google About Stories
Google Web Stories are web-based versions of the popular “Story” format prevalent in social media platforms. They combine video, audio, images, text, and animations to create a dynamic and casual way for consumers to consume content at their own pace by tapping or swiping from one panel to the next.
In recent years, the push towards sustainability and the urgent need to combat climate change has become a large part of the national conversation. Individuals are looking towards corporations to do their part in the fight against climate change. This was an important opportunity for Google to showcase the helpfulness of its tools as it relates to sustainability — focusing on how Timelapse is being used in partnership with other technologies and programs to empower everyone to take climate action across our planet’s cities, oceans, and forests.
