Google’s Weather Mascot “Froggy” Now Wears a Face Mask

Google weather frog mask 1

As the Coronavirus-led pandemic has made the face mask a new norm in societies, we have seen many major companies remind the public to always wear a mask as per CDC recommendations. So now, Google’s weather mascot, Froggy also abides by the rules and wears a mask when it is mowing the lawn or hanging up the clothes.

Froggy has been Google’s weather mascot for some time now and users can see him doing various things when they search for weather updates. Now, as some of the Americans are now protesting against wearing a mask, the Mountain View-based tech giant has come up to remind users of the importance of wearing face masks.

Google recently rolled out an update for the Google app on Android that adds a mask to Google’s weather app mascot, Froggy. The frog does the regular things it does like taking down its clothes or roaming around the field whilst wearing a face mask. The frog even has several face masks that shuffle randomly in the app. So, you won’t be seeing Froggy in the same mask every time.

Initially, the feature was not available for every region in the world when some Reddit users discovered it. However, Google recently rolled out a global update that adds the face masks to the frog for every Android user.

We have seen a similar move from Facebook recently when they announced to show alerts to users to encourage them to wear a face mask in public.

Google, aside from these subtle changes to their apps and services, has also been adding new safety features in their “Maps” app to help people avoid high-risk areas.

    I’m calling PETA!! Take that stupid mask off the cartoon frog.
    Google , it offends me with your WOKE agenda.. and by reading the other comments , I am not alone.

    • Robert L Cannaday Jr says:

      thank you…. i thought the same thing and removed the app becuase of the mask

  • Trust God says:

    Take that stupid mask off the frog, it’s not cute, it’s idiotic. Stop bowing down to a rogue government

    • Robert L Cannaday Jr says:

      Yes, thank you!!

  • Mic says:

    Sick, sick, sick of seeing that damn mask on the frog. You Google people just can’t bear to let the virtue signaling go. Besides the fact that this is so un-scientific.

  • Szkita Lord says:

    Froggy never needed wear mask anyway, he was alone always at least 364 day a year. Forcing mask to a frog is animal cruelty. Shame on google. The whole world is sick and tired of mask and all the B…s… came with it. Get the mask off from Froggy.🐸

  • pleiades says:

    Another great reason to wear a mask is to reduce the pollution introduced to lungs. I love, love, love, masked froggy. We may be the last masked on Earth, but we’ll be alive and healthy!

    • Robert L Cannaday Jr says:

      carbon dioxide is bad for you

  • Karen Kelley says:

    The Google Frog (froggy) does not need his mask on anymore. He is outside and there is no one close by.

  • Debra says:

    Enough! The frog is alone, outside and most likely a-political. Let the poor creature breathe deeply the air of a free, Constitutional Republic! When I check the weather I don’t need to be reminded of the globalists hijacking of our natural freedoms. Thank you!

    • Harry says:

      Yes, yes, and more yes!

  • Sandy Devereau says:

    To whom it may…. The Old Google graphics were clever and enjoyable..these newest one aren’t so cute
    Retro please !

  • Sandy Devereau says:

    Quite assanign !! Now if he’s at the Frog and Peach ( Slo), having libations, I can see wearing the mask. Or at the Grub store.. buying Food. But being alone out in (hopefully) fresh air is ridiculous…just like people driving alone wearing one. If you’re saying the air is that bad , better stop driving and other polluting !!
    I also wonder why the only laundry he has is towels-. Some polka dot pj’s would be cute ….and a jogging suit.
    Now give him a girlfriend or some picnic buddies.. even Frogs need company, then all can wear masks.

    • L.G. Swift says:

      Right on. Show him playing tennis and pole vaulting and things.

  • Peter Monast says:

    Seriously… take the mask off the frog a. he’s a cartoon, b. He’s alone
    C. He’s a cartoon!!!
    Beyond ridiculous!!I don’t even use that app because it’s so sad that you try to brainwash people even with a cartoon frog…sad..

  • Free the Frog says:

    Enough with the mask on the frog already. It’s a year and a half into this thing and we’re so done. You shouldn’t be wearing a mask outside in the first place but it’s really stupid when you’re BY YOURSELF! Besides we miss the cute froggy face😏

  • Olivia says:

    Take the mask of the 🐸
    For starters the frog his outside… This is upsetting to see STOP the propaganda.

  • Stephanie Johnson says:

    This is the most ignoramus thing they have came up with yet!!! So despicable! TAKE THE MASK OFF THE FROG. CDC says wear the mask only if within 6 feet of people so why on earth is he wearing a mask all by himself?! That goes against the “science”. Ya morons!!

    • Ann says:

      I couldn’t have said it better myself!! Thank you anti mask wearer!!


    • ClorisMcCracken says:

      I completely agree with Stephanie! An autumn mask while apple picking with others – ok, cute PSA. Post-vax, 2021, and Froggy can’t remove the mask while picnicking solo atop a mtn, or using the toilet in his own home? Ridiculous!

  • P says:

    Take off the friggin mask, nothing normal about it

  • Debra says:

    I hate the mask. I hate the mask on the frog. He’s not human, he is alone, he is out side. I am fed up with this communistic tyranny. Really? A mask on a frog? A pretend frog??? Enough of your leftist twaddle.

    • Claudia Marin says:

      I applaud you. Thank you for not being afraid and telling the truth. I get disgusted to see the frog with a mask.

    • ClorisMcCracken says:

      So true! Thanks for my new favorite word of the month – twaddle. 🙂

  • Advika Narkar says:

    I don’t think so. Google is spreading awareness in people to wear a mask.

  • Sue Barnes says:

    The mask is so awful…to put that on froggy. He is a frog…geeez…stop virtue signaling.

  • John Smith says:

    Take the mask off of the Froggy. He is ok outside and alone.

  • Lisamarie Edwards says:


  • Google Is Evil says:

    So woke.

  • Pamela Anderson says:

    He can lose the mask now!

  • Melissa says:

    A cartoon frog doesn’t need to cover his face with a ? ?!

  • A P Pauled says:

    A frog … on its own … in the country … wearing a mask!!! Idiotic.

  • Antimask Wearer says:

    That is absolutely stupid. Nothing like propaganda and subtle indoctrination of society. Get over it already.
