Google has changed the app icons for all its popular services and not everyone is happy with the new look.

The tech giant recently unveiled Google Workspace, a redesigned version of the Google G Suite of apps that includes Gmail, Google Docs, Calendar and others.

The new logos take more of an inspiration from Google’s famous colourful logo and, for example, throw yellow and green into the traditional red and white Gmail logo.

‘Our new Google Workspace brand reflects this more connected, helpful, and flexible experience, and our icons will reflect the same,’ Google explained.

‘In the coming weeks, you will see new four-color icons for Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Meet, and our collaborative content creation tools like Docs, Sheets, Slides that are part of the same family. They represent our commitment to building integrated communication and collaboration experiences for everyone, all with helpfulness from Google.’

For some reason, people took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the new look.
