Peachy is not the founder of the company, but this is his second letter of co-founder and was written once in 2015. In the following days, Google co-founder Larry Page and Sergey Brin wrote once.

In the letter, Pichai elaborated on the following themes:

—— The company's goals have changed. Pichay said that the company's initial goal was to organize global information, but now the focus is on building a Google that is more useful to everyone. "We want to provide everyone with the tools he needs to grow their knowledge, improve their health and make them happier and more successful," he said.

—— According to Pichay, when designing products, Google's original intention was to save time for users. He mentioned Google Translate, Smart Compose and other functions, with these tools, users write mail faster.

—— "We have many practical products, and YouTube is one of them," Pichay wrote. Users View Utility through YouTubeeducationVideo. Just a few months ago, YouTube was criticized for having a negative impact on teenagers, guiding teenagers to watch extreme content and recommending children's videos to users who have watched pornographic videos, and failing to deal fairly with hate speech. Of course, Pichai still attaches great importance to hate speech. He once said that deleting hate speech is not only a thorny computer science problem, but also a thorny social problem.

—— In the letter, Pichai also said, "We want to help you connect with people you love and things you love." For example, look at pictures of family and friends. "If you need it, you can disconnect with technology, such as digital wellbeing like WindDown, reminding users to go to bed early at night, and Family Link, which allows you to manage the time children use the screen," Pichay added.

—— "Products need more data to become more practical, and we are challenging this concept," Pichai said. Some have criticized Google and other large digital platforms for violating user privacy, and Pichai's comments seem to be a response to criticism.

Later, Pichai talked about other topics in his letter, such as in developing countries, where Google provides cheaper Internet services for local citizens, helps local communities by investing in housing, and helps the news industry earn an additional $300 million through the "News Initiative" project.
