Google Voice

Identical to Chat and Meet, Google Voice eliminates the dark green memo bubble setting. The icon is presently a landline phone with an alarm arising from it. Two shades of green are for an extra contemporary icon. Like, Keep, the brand new Voice icon made its initial impression on the web before arriving on Android. This action is not technically a fraction of Google Workspace, but it is the final consumer app to detect its category refresh.  Version 2020.46 also initiates a new status bar icon for scripts where a statement is in a white, rounded enclosure. It is so bold that people will not misunderstand it for the RCS Messages client. 

Google Keep

The Keep icon has existed carried in line with Google’s other productivity/editing apps. Rather than a rounded quadrangle, the light bulb — which is presently thick — is positioned on a layer of the sheet. Just like Docs/Sheets/Slides, the narrowly darker crease is in the top-right nook.

An update brought this brand new to iOS last weekend, and it is presently carving its way via the Play Store. Meanwhile, the site has also been revamped, with the newer icon initially emerging in the Google Workspace sideboard of various applications.

Google Docs, Sheets, Slides

The icons for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, as well as Sites and Forms, are intact. That announced, the earmark in the top-right intersection is now darker. Internally, Google has streamlined in several means, including one smaller layer of text/row and narrower glyphs.

Simply like Maps and Photos before this year, Gmail is approving an icon that leverages the four Google hues of blue, red, yellow, and green to shape an “M.” Red however has the substantials stake, but it arrives as Google walks away from accent colors in its applications.

All preceding Gmail icons distinctly star an envelope. It’s forthwith only indicated, with Google leveraging the whitespace above and below the central caret/chevron to shape an envelope. All contemporary smartphone icons are going to be positioned against a white background nonetheless.
