Google is rolling out a new icon for Google Pay in beta in India. The Pay app, formerly known as Tez, currently features Google with the letter G with the word Pay written next to it. The new Google Pay logo features interlocking lowercase letters e and n and are three-dimensional. 9to5 Google sued an Indian user who found the new logo in the beta and home screen.
It features Google’s famous four colors – red, blue, green, and yellow, which Google also introduced for Google Meet, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, and Calendar. Other logos of Google platforms including Chrome, Google Maps, Google Photos, Play Store also feature the palette of the famous four colors.
According to the report, Google Pay’s new design conforms to the minimalist aesthetic that Google has but doesn’t exactly communicate that it’s an app used for payments, especially compared to the previous icon.
All Google logos are known for their functionality, while the potential new Google Pay icon falls short of that mark. It should be noted that there is no official news from Google yet, but the pace at which the tech giant is establishing its own brand identity by redesigning Google’s icons seems only a matter of time when this change will also be implemented.
Google Pay for iOS recently received a design overhaul with a new UI for convenience. It has a separate New Payment option in the middle of the app and a standalone code scanner option on the top left. The code scanner can also be activated by swiping to the right. In September, the Tez version of Google Pay received a fluttering rewrite to help with its global expansion.
Last month, along with the Gmail icon, Google also updated the Calendar, Docs, Meet and Sheets logos to fit the new Gmail design. The new logos are part of a larger redesign of Google’s G Suite software, which is now Google Workspace. The Gmail logo change, however, didn’t go well with some users.
Google noted in a blog post: “Google Workspace offers people a familiar and fully integrated user experience that helps everyone succeed in this new reality, whether you are in the office, working from home, on the front line or interacting. with customers”.
Some users in India have seen the new Google Pay app logo with the updated home screen in the beta.
