The mobile version of Google Search has been redesigned to give it a new look and make it easier for users to find what they need. The search giant shared the development process through a blog post and shared some insights from the designer who led the visual redesign. The redesigned mobile version of Google Search will enable people to focus on information, make text easier to read, have an edge-to-edge design, use color deeper and feel “bubbly and bounce.”
“Rethinking visual design such as Search is indeed very complicated. This is especially true considering that Google search has evolved a lot. We are not only organizing information on the Internet, but also organizing all information around the world.” Responsible for mobile Google search vision Said Aileen Cheng, the redesigned Google designer. The redesign will be launched in the next few days.
The blog explains the five main aspects of the redesign, including centralizing information, making text easier to read, creating more breathing space, using color to highlight important content, and a tendency to “Googley”. The redesign of Google Search will enable users to focus on information, rather than design elements surrounding information, making searches clearer and faster. The text will be larger and bolder, including results and chapter titles will be larger. Search will deepen the use of Google’s own fonts.
To make it easier to instantly see what you are searching for, the redesign brings edge-to-edge results, which minimizes the use of shadows. This makes search results and other content the focus of the page. Cheng explained that the team maintains a clean background for images and content, but uses color to focus on important information.
Finally, the roundness of the Google logo was taken elsewhere, including icons and images. “This format has become part of our DNA. Just look at the search bar or magnifying glass,” Cheng added.
As mentioned earlier, the redesign will be launched in the next few days, and Google has not yet provided an exact date.
