Google pays a silent tribute to Queen Elizabeth II after she passed away a day earlier by displaying a muted gray version on its homepage.
Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted his condolences to Her Royal Majesty and praised the Queen for her leadership and public service, while offering condolences to the people of the UK and around the world.
We send our deepest condolences to the people of the UK and around the world who mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. His unwavering leadership and public service have been a constant throughout our lives. She will be missed.

Google has turned its colorful homepage to grayscale several times in the past, such as on Memorial Day.
The grayscale logo is visible on all devices, including the Discover feed on some Android phones.
