Google Services delivered $57 billion in revenues, up from $35 billion in the year-ago quarter. Of that, Google Search contributed $36 billion in revenues (up from $21 billion a year ago), while YouTube added $7 billion in revenues. Google Cloud hit $4.6 billion in revenues, and Alphabet’s “other bets” delivered $192 million in revenues.
