Google spotted testing ‘new’ search bar on desktops, here’s what it looks like


Google keeps testing new interface design every now and then, dropping breadcrumbs as to what we may expect to arrive next. Lately the search giant has been aggressively trying to integrate Material Design into its apps and services. While we have seen this being tested in Google Search on Android, the same has now been spotted on the desktop version as well.

As found by 9to5Google, Google’s ‘new’ search bar on desktop comes with two changes that are not in terms of search but more on the cosmetic side of things. The search bar is now a ‘pill-shaped’ one instead of a more angular one we see for now. It has a flat look with light outlines and without any shadows. The rounded search bar is seen even with the search drop down (or knowledge graph).

Of course, these changes are all just provisional at the moment. Google frequently tests tweaks to its design with various users (e.g., turning search results from blue to black), analyzing how the changes affect how people use their sites. Let us know if you’ve seen the Material Design update yourself and what you think of it.
