Google is revising what mobile search results look like, the company announced in a blog post on Friday. “We wanted to take a step back to simplify a little bit so that people could find what they were looking for, faster and easier,” said Eileen Cheng, who led the redesign, on the blog.
The redesign will have larger and bolder text that is designed for easier quick scanning and you will see more of Google’s font in the results. Search results will also take up most of your screen width, thanks in part to reduced shadows. Google also says the redesign will use the color “more deliberately”
To get an idea of how the redesign differs from the current experience, compare this redesign preview with a screenshot of the current search I took from my iPhone 12 mini.
The new design seems to put more information at the top of the page and reduce some visual clutter, which we hope will make the results easier to analyze without forcing you to scroll down too far to find what you’re looking for.
Google says the redesign will begin in the coming days.
