Search Engine Google on Tuesday evening revealed a brand new logo, following its company reorganization last month.

The word Google in a thicker rounder, sans-serif font.
A large G featuring all four colours, which replaces its little blue "g" icon.
A colourful Google mic.
Four re-arranging coloured dots.
"We've taken the Google logo and branding, which were originally built for a single desktop browser page, and updated them for a world of seamless computing across an endless number of devices and different kinds of inputs (such as tap, type and talk)," wrote Tamar Yehoshua, vice-president of product management and Bobby Nath, director of user experience.
"It doesn't simply tell you that you're using Google, but also shows you how Google is working for you." he added.
The updated Logo is already visible on its Search home page, and will roll out across products soon.
