  1. i am a changed human
    thank u google

  2. I’m watching this while currently going through a depressive episode. I asked myself, “why should I be happy? What reason do I have? What reason do I have to be here?” & then I thought:
    Because of free hugs
    Because gays can live happily ever after
    Because Game of Thrones
    Because of good music you’ll miss
    Because of great movies
    Because other people are triumphing their tribulations
    Because of the greats like Muhammad Ali
    Because you’ll miss others excitement about sports & big wins
    Because of children’s laughter
    Because some people are polite
    Because of Pokémon
    Because people are being empowered
    Because of love ❤️

  3. I'm watching it in 2019 and it's the best ever

  9. I literally just found out that Alan Rickman died from watching this video. How did I end up here? College Kids React on FBE and I'm watching in descending order from 2018. The power of YouTube…even when you've been left behind…it somehow finds a way to bring you forward…Google…You did that too

  10. This is my favorite of all the Google's Year in Search. But I like them all

  11. I really do love the concept that it aimed to push the year in a whole new darker direction as much as I felt very over ambitious for me to have this concept to stay along the way for 2017 as much as I was expecting for everything from that concept to continue along within the next year that was coming up.

  12. Whose watching this in 2019, happy new year! (This video still makes me cry)

  13. I officially lost it a Lin's "love is love is love" speech

  14. I saw Alan Rickman. Even two years later, I tear up. I’m a Harry Potter fan for LIFE! 😭

  15. get this video away from me it isn’t helping

  16. I'm watching in 31st December 2018 light the sky 💜

  17. HOLD THE DOOR !
    HOLD THE DOOR !
    Hodor

  19. I watch these when I want to cry

  20. AND LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE

  24. Rewatching in 2018 & it still gives me chills.

  25. The year where the lbgtq community has really taken off and is becoming so sadly accepted

  26. The beautiful voice and song written by 12 year old Grace Vanderwaal, and the speech of Lin Manuel Miranda, goose-bumps every time I turn back the clock and watch this. Well done GOOGLE! Happy New Year 2019 everyone, may all your hopes and dreams come true! ;))

  27. The best thing we can be is kind to others and ourselves ♥️🕊🌻

  28. Whose here cause 2018 is ending soon?

  29. Who's here from Google year in search – 2018?

  30. This is probably the best year in search and by far better than any rewind

  33. Love is love is love is love is love
