Every platform of social media these days make sure to keep their customers interested in what is happening by continuous updating software and style trends. One such change is recently introduced by Google Search engine functioning on mobile phone devices. The Google search now is being redesigned to offer it a fresh, stylish look and make it easier for users to find what information they are seeking for. The search giant shared the development through a blog post with some insights from the designer who led the visual redesign. Google Search redesign on mobile will now give access to people to focus on the information, make text easier to read, have an edge-to-edge design, deeper use of shades, and feel
“bubblier and bouncier”
“Rethinking the visual design for something like Search is really complex. That’s especially true given how much Google Search has evolved. We’re not just organizing the web’s information, but the entire world’s information,”
said Google designer Aileen Cheng who led the visual redesign for Google Search on mobile. The redesign will be roll out in the coming days.
According to the blog, there are five major aspects of the redesign including bringing information into focus, making text easier to read, creating more breathing room, using different shades to highlight what’s important, and leaning into the “Googley” feeling. Google Search redesign will allow users to focus on the information instead of the design elements around it that ensure searching with clearer and quicker results. The text will be larger and bolder, including result and section titles being bigger. Search will deepen the use of Google’s own font.
In order to make it easier and to quickly find what you are searching for, the redesign brings edge-to-edge results minimizing the use of shadows. This allows the search results and other content to become the focus of the page. Cheng explains that the team kept a clean background for the images and content but used shade to bring focus to important information. Further, the roundness in the Google logo is being brought to other places including the icons and images.
“That form is already so much a part of our DNA. Just look at the Search bar, or the magnifying glass,”
Cheng adds. As mentioned before, the redesign will roll out very soon and Google has not shared an exact date for the same. Google is redesigning how search results will appear on mobiles, the company announced in a blog on Friday. “We wanted to take a step back to simplify a bit so people could find what they’re looking for faster and more easily,” Aileen Cheng, who led the redesign, said in the blog.
The redesign will also include larger and bolder texts which intend to be easier to read, and you’ll see more of Google’s font in results. Search results will also take up more of the width of your screen, thanks in part to reduced shadows. Google also says the redesign will use shades “more intentionally” to help highlight important information without making you distracted. To get an idea of how the redesign differs from the current experience, compare this render of the redesign with a screenshot of the current search experience I took from my iPhone 12 mini. As it looks like the new design puts more information higher up the page and reduces some visual clutter, which will hopefully make results easier to parse without forcing you to scroll down too far to find what you’re looking for. Google says the redesign will roll out very quickly in the coming days.
