After changing it’s name, Google unveils its new logo. This has been the biggest redesigned since 1999 that Google has made. As per the giant search engine, the new design would soon be applied across its entire product. “Google has changed a lot over the past 17 years – from the range of our products to the evolution of their look and feel. And today we’re changing things up once again,” the company said in a blogpost. “It doesn’t simply tell you that you’re using Google, but also shows you how Google is working for you. For example, new elements like a colorful Google mic help you identify and interact with Google whether you’re talking, tapping or typing. Meanwhile, we’re bidding adieu to the little blue ‘g’ icon and replacing it with a four-color ‘G’ that matches the logo.” I’m now excited on how this will be applied to all other Google products, most specially with the apps.
