In 2019, Google announced a new brand identity for its mobile OS. Nearly four years later, Android is updating its logo, changing the spelling and adding a 3D version of the robot’s iconic head.
The new spelling starts with a capital “A” – after years of Android favoring all lowercase letters. In the new typeface, the “n” and “r” letters are perfectly rounded, bringing us back to the futuristic writing style of 2008 and 2014.
Meanwhile, the head of the Google robot is no longer flat, instead, the 3D head of Android is chosen, which really stands out more.
This new figure resurfaced at I/O 2023, with different design and material options (such as a disco ball) used when Google called Android “the most expressive OS.”
We first saw this updated logo and head next to it in an Android ad promoting third-party apps on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Flip 4.
Google today confirmed the “new corporate identity” and said we’ll learn more about it in the future.
Presumably, the new logo will appear on the boot screen of all Android devices. The brand currently looks like “Powered by Android”. It would make sense if Google launched this update along with Android 14 later this year.
