Google introduces a new logo and menu bar
Google is rolling out a new, flattened logo along with a tweaked top menu bar, which sheds that old black color and style. The top bar now comes with a differently designed and placed menu bar. The search engine giant has now introduced a new app launcher with links to other Google products. This changed interface was first reported by TechCrunch, though Google made it official soon after.
As a major interface overhaul, the new Google bar does not spread across the top but is placed in a smaller area on the top right side, alongside the share and account information links of a Google page. The app launcher looks pretty familiar. Basically, Google has kept the look of the new app launcher similar to the one on Android devices, and Chrome OS possibly to create a common identity across its platforms.
Those who have not yet received the update, Google has mentioned that it will be rolling out the update across most Google products over the new few weeks. Google has stated in its blog that it has only “refined the color palette and letter shapes of the Google logo.”
