Google introduced a new logo today. The new logo is still a wordmark, but it’s now using a sans-serif typeface, making it look a lot more modern and playful. It said the changes were needed because people were now reaching Google on lots of mobile devices rather than just desktop computers.
The web world got the surprise on Tuesday evening when the doodle showed the old logo being wiped off, and a hand scribbling the six letters in the iconic colours. Moments later, Google broke this news on Twitter.
It is also said that the logo, and its many variations, would work better on the many different-sized screens through people used Google and its services.
Google last updated its logo in September 2013.
