Google Photos renews the logo, the iOS application for 2020

Google Photos is perhaps one of the company’s most successful services to date, with millions of users trusting it to keep their photos safe and easily accessible. Now it looks like Google Photos is getting a new logo to reflect the “simplified” experience it offers in 2020.

First highlighted by our friend Justin Duino on Twitter, this revamped Google Photos logo appeared on the iOS App Store list sometime on June 24, 2020.

The new logo starts from the old windlass, presenting a new rounded shape for each of the four sections. The colors are the same and with this new design Photos fit better with the rest of recent Google redesigns like Google Maps. However, the “simplified” look already has many who just aren’t fans. Personally, I don’t like it very much either.

So far, iOS is the only place where this redesigned Google Photos logo appears. The web and Android apps remain intact, at least for now.

To update: Google has officially confirmed this redesigned logo and the redesigned app mentioned below. You can read more about it here.

Notably, this new logo also marks the beginning of a redesigned Google Photos app for iOS. This redesign eliminates a lot of “clutter” in the app while giving more attention to the “memories” row and new messaging features. We’ve seen parts of this redesign previously on Android, even enabling the full user interface. Still, that UI seems to be locked behind a server-side change.

Currently, even in the last update, no one in the 9to5Google or 9to5Mac The team has this redesign live on their device. On the contrary, we can only see it in screenshots in the App Store.
