LAHORE: 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 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 organising the web’s information, but all the 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.
The blog explains there are five major aspects of the redesign including bringing information into focus, making text easier to read, creating more breathing room, using colour 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 will make searching clearer and quicker. The text will be larger and bolder, including result and section titles being bigger. Search will deepen the use of Google’s own font.
To make it easier to instantly see what you are searching for, the redesign brings edge-to-edge results, thereby minimizing 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.
