Google redesigns its Mobile Search pages to be easier to read
Google Mobile Search is getting a brand new design, featuring a more modern look and providing easier-to-read search results.
Google, on January 22th, unveiled a significant redesign of its mobile search pages. The idea here is to display easier-to-read search results plus a more modern look with an edge-to-edge design.
With the new design of mobile search, Google aims to offer a better experience for users in 3 major ways of easy reading, simpler design, and modern approach.

Five major elements that drove the redesign of Google’s mobile search experience
The new-look keeps things clear and simple. And here are five major things included in Google’s Mobile Search redesign, according to Google’s announcement:
Bringing information into focus: Simplifying the experience and getting users to information and content they are looking for as quickly and clearly as possible is a part of the redesign.
Making text easier to read: Using larger, bolder text throughout the design to help users scan the search results faster and easier.
Creating more breathing room: By using fewer shadows and especially featuring a new edge-to-edge results design, there’s more visual space and breathing room for Google’s mobile search results to take center stage.
Using color to highlight what is important: The new version of design features a more intentional use of color to better guide the eye to important information.
Leaning into that “Googley” feeling: This redesign will also deliver a little “bubblier and bouncier” feeling. It borrows from the Google logo’s roundness and makes icons as well as other imagery more round. Google believes that this feels familiar and approachable.
