Google Workspace was announced as a rebranding of G Suite in early October, revamping its approach to being productive without an office. As part of these changes, new icons will appear for all Google Workspace apps. The rollout is currently underway.

Google Calendar

The calendar is treated similarly to the new Gmail icon in that it deletes the physical object that was previously modeled. It’s now folded into a square with the lower right corner. Blue is the basic color, while “31” is in the middle.

The 2020.42 version of Google Calendar for Android is introduced with the new logo. The date in the middle continues to update daily, while the new icon – except for the splash screen – doesn’t appear anywhere else in the app. An update brought that branding to iOS last week, and it’s now making its way through the Play Store.

In the meantime, the website still needs to be updated, although the new icon is already showing in the Google Workspace side panel of several apps.

Google Docs, Slides, Slides

The icons for Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, as well as websites and forms are largely unchanged. That means the ear tag in the upper right corner is now darker. Inside, Google has simplified in a number of ways, including one line / line less text and thinner glyphs.

Update 26.10: There’s a big change on Android where the entire page shape is placed against a white background. The apps previously used full-width launcher icons. So far, Google Docs have adopted the new design with version 1.20.422.01. Slides are added a few days later.

Google Meet

The Meet icon largely corresponds to Gmail and Drive as it is made up of the four Google colors. Green is the dominant hue here – another nod to communication and classic hangouts, while there’s just a tiny bit of red.

19.10: Google Meet is also being introduced on Android today with version 2020.10.04.337166131. The previous symbol was notable for a fold.

Google Chat

Chat gets a new flat logo, but it’s all green in tribute to Hangouts. The inner ‘@’ symbol has been removed, while the circular message symbol is now rectangular and intersects with a rectangle.

19.10: Google Chat is next on the program with version 2020.10.04.336992968 for Android. This is not yet widely used and has a larger status bar icon that is clearer.

Google Mail

Just like Maps and Photos earlier this year, Gmail uses an icon that uses the four Google colors of blue, red, yellow and green to form an “M”. Red still has the largest share, but it comes as Google moves away from accent colors in its apps.

All previous Gmail icons clearly have an envelope. This is only implied as Google uses the space above and below the middle caret / chevron to form an envelope. It is smart that all modern smartphone icons are placed against a white background anyway.

10/16: The 2020.10.04.337159408 version of Gmail for Android launches today with the new icon. Apart from the home screen, it is not visible anywhere else in the app, which was also the case before, as there was no welcome screen. The status bar icon is now an outline of the Gmail logo.

The revised branding also reaches the web client for some users, but is not yet generally visible.

Google Drive

The drive is relatively unchanged, but the triangle has slightly rounded edges. There’s also a very subtle splash of red after the icon was previously only three colors. It’s the smallest change, but in the end, one of the most delightful.

10/14: Google Drive is the first app with a new workspace icon available to end users. On Android, version 2.20.401.06.40 will still be introduced via the Play Store, but the list has yet to be updated. The new icon will appear on the home screen icon and on the welcome screen.

If there is another change, Google will update the icon in the Android status bar. It is covered with the material issue and is now just a hollowed out outline.

The new drive icon will also appear in the web app. This is a simple replacement in the top left corner and in the favicon. The icon in the Web App Launcher is also the older version.
