Google is redesigning how search results look on mobile, the company announced in a blog on Friday. “We wanted to take a step back to simplify a bit so people could find what they’re looking for faster and more easily,” Aileen Cheng, who led the redesign, said in the blog.

The redesign will have larger and bolder text that’s intended to be easier to scan quickly, and you’ll see more of Google’s font in results. Search results will also take up more of the width of your screen, thanks in part to reduced shadows. Google also says the redesign will use color “more intentionally” to help highlight important information without being distracting.

To get an idea of how the redesign differs from the current experience, compare this render of the redesign with a screenshot of the current search experience I took from my iPhone 12 mini.

It looks like the new design puts more information higher up the page and reduces some visual clutter, which will hopefully make results easier to parse without forcing you to scroll down too far to find what you’re looking for.

Google says the redesign will roll out in the coming days.

  1. Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover somebody who really understands what they’re
    talking about over the internet. You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. More and more people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you surely have the gift.

  2. I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  3. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult
    time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!
