Google has announced that it is joining several other major Internet companies to officially launch IPv6 on June 6, 2012. Google was part of a group of companies that had participated in World IPv6 Day in June of last year to confirm that IPv6 wouldn't break the Internet. As part of World IPv6 Launch, Google will be switching its services over to the new standard. Google is encouraging others to join the effort to transition to IPv6 on this date, helping to pave the way into the future. All of this is necessary as all of the available IPv4 addresses were given out as of last year.
