Android Police, a number of people have reported that the 4 x 1 search widget for the Google app is showcasing a new, rounded look. Rather than the traditional rectangular bar with the world "Google" spelled out in its entirety, the updated widget shows a circular "G" icon at the left with the entire bar featuring a much more rounded look. The microphone icon is still present on the right side of the widget, and the main body also features a gray color as opposed to a stark white one.According to
The change here isn't all that dramatic as it appears to only be a cosmetic update, but it's still something new and fresh to look forward to. The new search bar has yet to be spotted in the Google Now Launcher with its persistent one, but there is a chance that Google could release the updated widget to the masses if initial impressions are positive.
