Last week, Google rolled out an update to Google Now that allows users to customize their Google App experience. As reported by 9to5′s Social Media Channel, a mere tap on Google Now will display a range of animated logos. The users are not only allowed to select their favorite logo, but also to adjust the logo color according to their own tastes. Users can see their customized Google App version displayed at the top of the stream.
According to the 9to5Google.com report, users with Google App’s latest version installed on their devices can use the new and updated Google Now feature. So, if you’re bored of the Google App showing up in the same standard colors, then you can switch them to your own favorite ones by using the finger paint-like feature that is included within the app.
“Users will notice an enlarged Google logo that occupies the fill width of their device. At first it is shown in its normal colors, but it will slowly fade into white. Whatever part of the logo a user taps will be filled with a splotch of color. Every touch changes the color and by the end users will have a uniquely colored Google logo.”
As per 9to5Google.com, the slow to load app update will sport some new animated icons like a magnifying search glass, a musical note, eating utensils and other relevant search images instead of the animated blue circle that used to indicate search progress.
Google always puts user experience on the top of its priority list and the new update is a continuation of that process.
