This question already has an answer here:

Is there a term for when a well-known noun such as Google, Yelp, Snapchat, etc. become a verb. People now say, let's google it and it is understood that they will use google to search something. Or let's yelp it to check nearby restaurants or information pertaining to nearby restaurants. It usually only happens to popular companies, as no one says let's yahoo this. Is there a term that describes this phenomenon?
