Google reveals new mobile friendly logo
Sept.2, New York: Google has exposed a new logo for its core search services after it puts many divisions under an umbrella company called Alphabet. The change smoothes out some of the features in the letters that make up the well-known colourful logo spelling out its name.
The change was needed because people were now reaching Google on lots of mobile devices rather than just desktop computers, it said.
The logo, and its many variations, would work better on the many different-sized screens through which people used or encountered Google and its services.
As well as the full logo of the company's name, it also plans to use four dots in its signature blue, red, yellow and green colours and a single, multi-coloured capital "G" to represent it.
Google announced the change on its official blog and illustrated what was different via a series of animated gifs. It said the revamped logo was "simple, uncluttered, colorful, friendly" and represented the best of Google.
