Tech giant Google recently update the logos for many of their services, but many Indians have decided to question the change of the logo of their email service Gmail. Some have complained they hate it days after using it, and some have asked that the internet giant restore the old logo.
Gmail new colourful logo emphasises an M that features all the colours in the company’s logo: red, green, yellow and blue. The change in the logo results in its colour scheme matching those of Google and other products like Maps, Photos, Chrome, and other products. The previous logo of Gmail has been around since 2013.
The change comes soon after Google announced that it is working in transforming what is known as the G Suite to ‘Google Workspace’ in order to give users a more centralised experience.
However, some argued against the change in logo saying the previous logo was perfectly fine. Others argued it needed to be changed for the better.
The new Gmail logo is silicon valley’s version of a nose job gone horribly wrong😭

Gmail’s new logo is surprisingly similar to @monzo and that makes for very confusing notifications. It’s an email, no – I bought a coffee earlier, no it’s a calendar event confirmation. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/D4CMH5uj4m

I feel like the new Gmail logo should have looked more like this, given the overlaps. pic.twitter.com/SAo2TLUgFX
