The company generated total revenue of $446.2 billion with net income of $11.2 billion. Experts predicted that Alphabet will earn total revenue of $442.84 billion. However, the company’s market share grew to 8.5%.

Let’s see how it turned out.

YouTube Revenue:

YouTube revenue increased from $3.8 billion to $5.0 billion in the third quarter report. Previously, analysts predicted that YouTube could generate a total of $4.52 billion in the last quarter.

However, YouTube surpassed that by 0.48 billion. The increase in profit is due to the strong growth of advertisements on YouTube.

Income from other bets:

Alphabet has many other subsidiaries which include Calico, Waymo, Wings and many others. These are collectively known as XXVI Holdings, Inc., which we like to call ‘Other Bets’.

Google also got other revenues that include hardware like Pixel phones, Pixel books, Chrome books, etc.

Total revenue was about $5.48 billion this year, up from $4.05 billion last year.

This increase could be due to the lockdown period when users were at home and using these gadgets for entertainment purposes.


In conclusion, we can say that Alphabet is doing a profitable business. The company has nearly $11.6 billion in free cash flow, which is appreciable.
