Google Search gets a makeover on iPhones, Android phones


Google has redesigned the Search app for both iOS and Android. In a blog post, the Google has revealed why it made changes. It was Google designer Aileen Chang who spearheaded the design overhaul.

She said, we wanted to take a step back to simplify a bit so people could find what they’re looking for faster and more easily. Rethinking the visual design for something like Search is really complex before adding that Search has evolved so much over the year. We’re not just organising the web’s information, but all the world’s information. We started with organising web pages, but now there’s so much diversity in the types of content and information we have to help make sense of.

The five things that led to the redesign of Search are

Google wanted to search results shine and allow people to just focus on information and not other elements. According to the blog, It’s about simplifying the experience and getting people to the information they’re looking for as clearly and quickly as possible.

Google has used larger and bolder text to ensure people can understand Search results faster. According to the blog, We are making the result and section titles bigger, as well. The update also includes more of Google’s own font, which already shows up in Android and Gmail, among other Google products.

According to the blog, We decided to create a new edge to edge results design and to minimise the use of shadows, making it easier to immediately see what you’re looking for. The overall effect is that users will have more visual space and breathing room for Search results and other content to take center stage..

The use of colours at right places

Google says that it focused on centering content and images against a clean background and using color more intentionally to guide the eye to important information without being overwhelming or distracting.

There’s more of Google in the Search

The Google logo has a more roundness now in Search. Google went for more rounded icons and imagery in other apps recently and now it’s coming to Search. The search bar, magnifying glass will be more rounder in Search.
