Google Drive Update

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Google is making some updates to the look and feel of Google Drive on the web. There’s no change in functionality, but some icons and buttons have moved, and there’s a range of visual tweaks to align with Google’s latest material design principles.


Google built this new interface to create a responsive and efficient experience for Drive users and to feel cohesive with other G Suite products, such as the recently redesigned Gmail.

Specific changes include:

  • The logo in the top left has been changed to the Google Drive logo.

  • If you’ve added a custom company logo, it is now in the top right.

  • The Settings icon has been moved in line with the search bar.

  • The Help Center icon has been moved in line with the search bar.

  • The page background is now white, not gray.

  • The “New” button has been updated.

  • The font used for headers has been changed.


Here’s a comparison of several screens in the old and the new interface:
