Google redesigns its mobile search engine


Google announced in a blog post on Friday that it is redesigning the look of mobile search results to focus on simplicity.

Google describes the updated user interface as a major visual redesign, which aims to simplify things for users, make information focused, improve text reading ability, and more.

"We wanted to take a step back to make things a little easier and people could find what they were looking for faster and easier," said Aileen Cheng, who led the redesign process.

Consistency in the time and how fonts are used in research is also important, which also helps people to analyze information more efficiently.

The redesign includes larger, bolder text intended to be easier to scan quickly, as well as more Google fonts, used in Android and Gemmell, in the results.

Search results also take up more space than your screen and extend from edge to edge, thanks in part to reducing shadows, making it easy for you to determine the result you're looking for and saving visual space.

Google also uses colors to highlight what is important, and the company can use colors to guide users to information by displaying results on a clean background.

Google also says that redesign uses color more deliberately to help highlight important information without distracting.

The new design seems to put more information at the top of the page and reduces some visual clutter, which hopefully will make the results easier to analyze without forcing you to scroll down a lot to find what you're looking for.

Google says the redesign will be launched in the coming days, and Cheng said: Rethinking the visual design of something like search is really complicated.

"This is especially true given how Google search has evolved, we're not only regulating web information, but all the information around the world, and we've started organizing web pages, but now there's a lot of diversity in our content and information types to help understand them."
