Bing is apparently getting a Fluent Design logo, too

It's been well over a year since Microsoft first showed off the new Fluent-inspired icons for the Office suite of apps, and since then, we've been seeing the company bring that look to more of its apps and services. Many of the pre-installed Windows 10 apps have started to receive the new icons, and even Windows itself is set to get a similarly-styled icon at some point.

The new look is rolling out gradually to all of Microsoft's products, and so far, Bing had been left out, but that seems to be changing. Twitter user Gunjan Nagpal apparently spotted a new icon for the search engine (via Thurrott.com), and it replaces the sharp edges and corners of the old logo for a much rounder stylization of the letter B.

This is actually the first major change to Bing's logo since 2013, when it adopted the current stylization of B. It only received minor tweaks and color change in 2016. Of course, the new logo still algins pretty closely with Microsoft's design language for most of its icons, with different shades of blue being used to add a sense of depth. It's still fairly recognizable if you're familiar with the previous logo, though.

As of right now, the logo doesn't seem to be available for everyone visiting Bing, and we've reached out to Microsoft to know if we should expect a broader rollout soon.
