Google has updated their logo Less than a month after the company shook up their corporate structure, Google has announced a new logo, the first real change to the look in over a decade.
Says Google: "So why are we doing this now? Once upon a time, Google was one destination that you reached from one device: a desktop PC. These days, people interact with Google products across many different platforms, apps and devices--sometimes all in a single day. You expect Google to help you whenever and wherever you need it, whether it's on your mobile phone, TV, watch, the dashboard in your car, and yes, even a desktop!

Today we're introducing a new logo and identity family that reflects this reality and shows you when the Google magic is working for you, even on the tiniest screens. As you'll see, we've taken the Google logo and branding, which were originally built for a single desktop browser page, and updated them for a world of seamless computing across an endless number of devices and different kinds of inputs (such as tap, type and talk).

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."


Google App and Android users will already see the updates, which includes a different look for some of your favorite apps.

No complaints. Nothing special imo. The first two logos were awful, and lol at the exclamation point in the second logo.

This is the worst tidbit of news I've ever encountered. It's totally meaningless and I agree with Semperfipal..........BFD!

Font looks like it was ripped off from Sesame Street. I'm waiting for big bird to pop his head out of on of the O's. Lol
