Just the other day Yahoo announced a new logo which was met with mixed reviews, and now it looks like Google could be unveiling a new logo as well. Thanks to the folks at Ars Technica, they have managed to unearth what appears to be a new Google logo in the latest version of Chrome Beta for Android. As you can see in the comparison image above, Google’s new logo appears to be a flatter version of its current design, which kind of makes sense given Google’s UI these days. In fact for those who are wondering if this is an official Google logo, hitting up this URL from Google will reveal the new logo as well.
At this point in time it is unclear to what extent Google will be using this new logo. Will it completely replace the older logo, or will it only be used in some situations? According to The Verge, the claim that the flatter logo is expected to be used in situations where the older logo might not display so well, and that its addition to Chrome was by accident. What this means is that Google’s current logo will still be sticking around, at least for now, but what do you guys think? Do you prefer the flatter design?
