How does O3 have dipole-dipole interactions?

How can it have a dipole moment if they are all the same atom?

Between all molecules there exists induced dipole induced dipole intermolecular forces, even if the molecule is nonpolar. In this case, O3 has a bent geometric shape, which means that it is a polar molecule, and therefore, has dipole-dipole interactions

Ozone is polar as it is bent, therefore it has a net dipole.
