Google changes logo

SAN FRANCISCO: Google on Tuesday refreshed its logo to better suit mobile devices that are supplanting desktop computers when it comes to modern internet lifestyles. Google’s logo keeps its four-colour scheme but shifts to a soft sans-serif font.

The company is also replacing the well-known blue lower case ‘g’ icon with an upper-case ‘G’ combining blue, green, red and yellow. The 17-year-old internet company is keen to follow users of its online products onto new generations of internet-linked devices such as smartphones, tablets and watches.
