In recent weeks, Google has introduced its Android dialer for non-Pixel devices and changed the list on the Play Store. It now looks like the upcoming rebranding will give the Phone app a new logo and name: “Google Call.”
An ad for the Google Phone app appeared on YouTube today – as officially mentioned in the Play Store. It includes a download link and highlights the “trusted caller ID” feature. The included screenshot – which exists today – shows nothing unusual.
However, there is a new logo in the upper right corner of the ad. This is a common phone icon – it’s identical to the new Voice logo, but uses Google̵
This can be the new application name as well as the home screen icon. The current one uses a slightly different shape and is placed on a blue background.
This new icon is not active on Google Play or any other site. It will come after the major rebranding of Workspace and all applications under this umbrella. The Phone app, along with Messages and Duo, is run by the same CEO who controls the performance package.
As such, it may be possible for all of these consumer communications products to have a new look waiting to be announced. However, a new name to accompany it would be a big diversion.
However, this rebranding would reflect all of Google’s intelligence in the Phone Today app from Call Screen and Hold for Me, as well as the spam and search warning.
