Google Is Rolling Out New Rounded Search UI With Sticky Header on Desktop

Google seems to be rolling out a new User Interface for desktop search results. The new UI is different from the old in that it has a more rounded design (including the search bar), a sticky header, and a smaller logo. Google Rounded Search Interface with Sticky Header Roll Ouy


Google started testing this interface in August, and more an more people have been noticing it lately. I am able to replicate it in different browsers on different desktop devices which usually indicates a rollout, although it is possible that Google is still running a very large test.

Google rolled out a rounded UI for mobile search in November 2017, and this new update helps them to close this gap between desktop and mobile UX.

Here is what the Google Search design looked like before the update:

Interestingly, the rounded interface has not been rolled out for any other Google search services. Google News, Images, Videos, etc., still look the same.Google News
