Google updated their company logo and inevitably the updates to their apps followed. This particular update sees Google Now be bumped to version 5.2.33 and their Google Now Launcher feature the new logo as well as some new animations and a splash of colour.

Google has decided to add lots of colour to their launcher, and even the microphone icon now has colour. There’s a visual refresh when it comes to the Google Now part of the system, with new animations for swiping away. I like the new design as it seems to add a bit of character to an otherwise flat design.
