New Google Now Animation, New Holo Color (?), Blue Inconsistency!

Google Search/Now recently got a pretty significant UI update. It finally adopted the much awaited pull-to-refresh paradigm, and the settings layout has become much more streamlined.

Though, the pull-to-refresh has changed a bit. In fact, it has become much better. In Gmail and other G apps, the pulltorefresh requires you to swipe down pretty far. The new pulltorefresh found in Google Now allows you to swipe less (if that makes any sense), and it comes with a welcome sliding animation, letting you know that you indeed swiped down.

We even get the new Kit Kat toast!

This isn’t the only thing that the Google Now update has given us: We may have gotten a new Holo color!

New Blue?

New Blue?

 

I personally love the new shade of blue, but I’m really disliking the continued inconsistency Google is showing throughout it’s products, even with colors. The new Google Now blue isn’t #HoloYolo blue. And even the YouTube website updated the Like button and like/dislike bar to another shade of blue! Why, Google, WHY?

The like bar is a different shade of blue.

By the way, I’m loving the new use of Roboto Condensed! Do you?

Anyways, enough ranting for today. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments down belooow.

  1. Totally agreed. However, I think the actionbar is vastly inconsistent than before. They are now all caps-ing the text and not using the launcher icon in the actionbar. Talk about inconsistency.

Got something to say?
