Google has today unveiled a new logo for Android, amongst a series of other branding uplifts.
The key changes include capitalising the ‘A’ in Android, and refinements to the Android typeface to “better communicate the relationship between Android devices and the Google apps and services people know.”
There’s also an all-new Android robot design - it’s in 3D, and and has a refined full-body appearance that Google says will be used in various forms across channels, platforms and contexts.
Jason Fournier writing on the Google blog today:
Each time we overhaul our branding, we evaluate not only changing needs, but also future goals. We know people today want more choice and autonomy, and we want our brand to be reflective of Android: something that gives people the freedom to create on their terms.
As an open platform, it’s important that both our technology and brand are an invitation for people to create, connect and do more with Google on Android devices.
The last refresh to the Android logo was in 2019 as part of Android 10, when Google refined it to be more readable and enhance its accessibility.
