Introducing the new Search UI for Mobile Devices nealeigh 9/27/13 9:15 AM

Today, we are unveiling a redesigned UI for tablets and phones that modernizes and unifies our design for web search results.  It’s cleaner, simpler, and optimized for touch.



Why this design?
The redesign presents search results in a clustered card UI. This presentation allows for deeper, app-like experience with individual, easily-browsable results (e.g. oneboxes, flights, news, etc.)


Where will I see the changes?

Anytime you do a Google search from our homepage, google.com, or the main search results page for web results.


Why is there no background color on ads anymore?

We’re constantly evolving the search experience on Google and we'll continue to clearly label ads to help users distinguish between organic and paid content on the search results page.  

How can I learn more?

How do we get the old look back

Previously there was an option on the bottom to display Desktop UI instead of Tablet

On a tablet I prefer the full website, not the mobile optimized one, how do I get this now

I use a 10" tablet (iPad). It's easier to carry around than a laptop and, with its hi-res display is just as useful for serious searching.

I neither need nor want the mobile UI on my tablet. The desktop UI is far more useful on a 10" tablet than a UI optimized for a 4-5" phone display. If I use the browser for searching, it's because I want more detail than I can get in the mobile app.

Now that the mobile/desktop UI switch has been removed, how do I get Google to see my tablet as a desktop/laptop and display results in a practical format when I use the browser for searching?

Same problem as the previous posters. I am using Google's services on a COMPUTER. I do NOT want to use a smartphone interface. Where can I set the interface back to COMPUTER mode? If there is no such option, when will it be released?

I switched to the search engine DuckDuckGo and it's fantastic. NO endless requests to type in personal info. (It doesn't collect any!) I'd never even heard of this before but I put all the things I liked from the black bar (Images, maps, YouTube etc.) to the favorites bar and I'm good to go. Only time will tell but I may have been able to dump Google (As well as Bing and Yahoo) and their endless ads for GOOD!

I really, really like the clean new UI as I like minimalism on my work space. But it has disappeared and gone back to the big black 'toolbar' across the top look. I only had the new UI for a week, What a tease! This is probably the reason why but wanted to check. I have a Samsung ultrabook so it's a touch screen tablet and a laptop. I assume that the powers that be have decided that Im more laptop than touchscreen tablet. Well I use both equally, maybe a little more touching than typing and touch pad. Makes me sound so dirty lol. Anyway is there a way to get  back the touchscreen UI for my touchscreen laptop? Not the end of the world obviously but I just really liked the new UI.

Razor512:
The new Google bar design is now being rolled out to all users.
It supersedes the "black bar" version.
See this announcement: Updating the Google bar: many products, multiple devices

Hey Philip,
 
Would you post your question separately so that the discussions don't overlap.  It's easy to do, just click on the red rectangle at the top of this page "POST A QUESTION" and follow the prompts.
 
Thanks,
