Google Search gets a new look on your mobile. Google unveiled the so-called “major visual redesign” of the mobile version of Google Search on Friday, which should be available in the coming days, informs the XDA Developers portal.
“We wanted to take a step back and simplify the design so that users can find what they are looking for faster and easier,” said Google designer Aileen Cheng, who led the redesign.
Functionality comes first
One of the first things Cheng wanted to do was simplify the search and help users get the information they were looking for faster. In practice, this means displaying search results as clearly and quickly as possible. One of the ways Google did this was to use a larger and bolder font and increase the section name. The typeface Google used itself was developed by Android and Gmail.
“It was important to ensure consistency in when and how we use different fonts in our search. This helps users analyze information more efficiently, ”explained Cheng.
The design will be more fun and colorful, but will retain its simplicity
Search results will now be displayed from region to region, and Google has also shed its shadows. This will make it easier for users to view the results and provide a visual space so that the individual information is not inflated on itself. Search results will also be more colorful.
Finally, the company said users will notice that Google Search is now more “vibrant and fun,” thanks to rounded icons and images.
“Changing the visual of Search was really difficult because of how it has evolved over the years,” said Cheng. “Search no longer organizes just information from the web, but information from around the world. Also, in the beginning, Search only organized websites, but now it organizes a lot of different types of information. ”
