INTRO: The tech giant Google has recently given a facelift to the icons of most of its Workspace apps, which include Gmail, Google Drive, Meet, and many more. All of them now coordinate with the company’s core color scheme (red, green, yellow, and blue) and no longer have a unique identity. They look mostly an equivalent and well, the corporate seems to be throwing another app into the combination i.e google pay.
The Google Pay app (formerly known as Tez and popularly called GPay) in India has been spotted with a colorful new logo by Twitter user Sumanta Das. The new logo is currently live only for a select few users. But, the primary question is – why the new logo and what does it signify?
The existing Google Pay logo includes the ‘G’ and ‘Pay’ from the name, as shown within the image above. It is only the Google logo that’s multi-colored here. The new logo, on the opposite hand, doesn’t seem to represent the payment app itself. If we were to form any sense of the new logo, i might say the blue and yellow ‘u’ half represents the ‘G’ and therefore the green and red ‘inverted u’ half represents the ‘P’ within the Google Pay name. You just got to add a line within the middle to finish the letters.
The new Google Pay logo is in line with the company’s new design and color scheme for its products. It is minimalistic and representative of its identity. Long-time G Pay users will not be happy with the change though. It will take a while to urge wont to the new colored Google logos rather than the more stylized ones from before.
The new Google Pay logo isn’t available for anyone within the Beebom team. There is no pending update and therefore the Play Store listing is yet to be updated also . So, keep an eye fixed out as this could be a phased server-side rollout. Google is yet to form a politician statement and switch to the new logo on its social profiles also .
