Google announced today a fresh look for its search experience on mobile. The goal is to make search results easier to read and introduce a more modern design to its mobile search.
Aileen Cheng, who oversaw the visual redesign, shared a few details about the new look. One of the notable changes is the addition of more roundness to the overall search experience. This can be seen in the Google logo, icons, search bar, and imagery in what Cheng described as a “Googley” feeling.
Google also replaced the shaded boxes around individual search results with straight lines as part of the new edge-to-edge design. Cheng noted that this aims to create "more breathing room" and help users immediately see what they're looking for.
In addition, search results are easier to read with the use of "larger, bolder text". The result and section titles are bigger in the new design. Google is also bringing its own font, which is already used in some of its products such as Gmail and Android, to the mobile search experience.
There’s also a bit of a cleaner background and new color that are meant to highlight important parts of the results page. Google says these changes are rolling out over the next few days.
