How Google is reshaping search results on mobile, the company announced in a blog on Friday. “We wanted to take a step back to simplify a bit so that people can find what they are looking for faster and more easily,” Ellen Cheng, who led the redesign, said in the blog.
The redesign will have larger and bolder text intended to be easier to scan quickly, and you’ll see more Google fonts in the results. Search results will also take up more of the width of your screen, thanks to the lower shadow portion. Google also says that the redesign will help use color “more deliberately” without distracting important information.
To get an idea of how the redesign differs from the current look, I compare this render of the redesign with a screenshot of the current search experience taken from my iPhone 12 Mini.
It seems that the new design puts more information on the page and reduces some visual clutter, which it hopes will make the result easier to parse without.
Google says that the redesign will roll out in the coming days.
