    Was it not enough to see this garbage design in everyday life that you post on the feed and make me suffer?

    You, good sir, are evil.

    God damn are these icons ugly...
    What kind of root did they smoke to come up with the docs and meet icons? 🤮

    I never saw a single new icon post and not see everyone disagree with them. They look good! Don't flame them

    @frogstair They don't if they are grouped together which is the case in the common browsers and mobile launchers like mine. 'Utility' takes priority - Isn't that why those apps are there in the first place? I appreciate how they want to Googlise the icons but it is not helping.

    I guess they don't want apps to resemble their related real-world objects anymore 😕

    I had so much trouble finding the apps on the first 1-2 days.

    Fuck Google.

    Its weird that a company who wants to show colors , and inclusiveness/innovation as their principles, is making a dumb move by going full corporate style limited color palette and similar designs.
    Sure , its a power move indicating that google is no longer a collection of ideas but rather a mature services providing organization, but google is losing its values of being unique and innovative with this design.

    Microsoft in 2003 had those shit similar icons signifying their maturity and corporate values. Then google came with the biggest innovative in tech world , the android os. Later when Android matured even giants like microsoft understood the power of colorful ui and then came those beautiful icons in 2018-19

    But over the last few years, google is just being plain competitive and rarely innovating, be it their os,be it their pixel phones or be it their saas platforms

    It's just making the icons nondescript.
    So much for older folks trying to understand what the app does

    Also thank god they didn't came for YouTube. Maybe because its too big of a revenue source to risk shitty icons. If you notice, youtube has gone very minor changes, especially in their website , in contrast to the other products' timeline.

    What's the fucking M? High school Mail?

    @PonySlaystation They're too busy with their mass surveillance practices that the designs might have gotten less attention...

    @Lexter As one of the leading organisations with a worldly impact, they have a huge responsibility, and it is okay for us to criticise when we have to. Organisations are nothing without customers, and customers can always voice up upon inconvenience. I don't hate Google. I like Google's products.

    It's getting more difficult to detect the gmail tab with this design....

    I find them useful; we have all our stuff on Google now. Makes collaboration easy. Also icons have names under them. Hey, work is not aesthetics!

    Gee I wonder what icon would resemble emails well.

    A letter with a flap that looks like an M which is a clever representation of both mail and the letter M?

    NOPE. Give me a fucking letter M with the color of a children's plastic toy and get rid of the envelope theme. That'll make more sense.

    Why in God's name would you change something that isn't broken? Is this what you do if you have 115 billion dollars in your war chest?!
