This is an extension of the World IPv6 Day initiative that took place last year when these companies turned on IPv6 support for one day.

Google said:

For Google, World IPv6 Launch means that virtually all our services, including Search, Gmail, YouTube and many more, will be available to the world over IPv6 permanently. Previously, only participants in the Google over IPv6 program (several hundred thousand users, including almost all Google employees have been using it every day. Now we’re including everyone.
