Google Chat has now officially received a new icon, as well as redesigned navigation on the web app with dedicated views for “Home” and “Mentions.”
This new icon adopts the four-color style of every other Google Workspace logo. (Keep, Tasks, and Voice are technically only adjacent to Workspace). Green is the predominant color in a possible homage to Hangouts.
Here’s the official information
Google says this new Chat icon “reflects the central role of business messaging and collaboration in Workspace.” It is rolling out “over the coming weeks” in the top-left corner of the website and mobile apps.
