Snapchat created a “Purple Rain” filter in honor of the late entertainer — named after his hit 1984 album and cult-classic film — allowing users to add purple raindrops to their videos.

Google similarly turned its logo a plum hue and had animated purple rain drizzling down on the search engine home page.
