The cute animation today showcases a setting of a window pane right after a light shower where lots of raindrops have collected. The animation begins with a raindrop appearing on the top of the window pane and looking at another droplet. As they both smile towards each other, the first droplet slips and falls to the bottom of the window pane. Seeing this, the second raindrop glides over the window glass and joins the former to make a ‘heart shape’ before falling down together. Google calls this theme ‘Rain or shine, will you be mine?’.
Google also gave us a cool fun fact around Valentine’s day.
