Chrome New Tab Page Material You Design Upgrades
The Chrome New Tab page is receiving a new update that includes Material You design upgrades. These changes enhance the entire interface and involve removing some previous elements. Dynamic Color changes also help the app to stand out.
Thicker Search Bar
One of the most noticeable changes is the thicker search bar on the New Tab page. This upgrade aligns with changes seen in other Google apps, and the text within the search bar now uses Dynamic Color to match the app’s theme.
All Design Changes
In addition to the search bar upgrade, users will also notice other design changes once the update arrives. The home button is now missing from the interface, and the ‘Google’ icon has been made smaller to allow for other design improvements. The frequently visited websites grid section has also been upgraded with the addition of a rounded card and larger, more square-ish toggle buttons for ‘Discover’ and ‘Following’.
These design changes are currently rolling out to the Chrome New Tab page, with some users receiving the update before others.
