Google Chrome Logo: Updates
In a long Twitter thread, Hu said the changes have been made based on the different operating systems Chrome appears on. “On ChromeOS, they use brighter colours without gradients to match the looks of the rest of system icons. On macOS, they look 3D. For Beta and Dev, we applied colourful ribbons to them,” he said. Have a look at the tweet shared by Google Chrome designer Elvin Hu-

The main Chrome logo won’t look the same across all systems either. On ChromeOS, the logo will look more colourful to complement the other system icons, while on macOS, the logo will have a small shadow, making it appear as if it’s “popping out” of the dock. Meanwhile, the Windows 10 and 11 version has a more dramatic gradient so that it fits in with the style of other Windows icons.
As per The Verge, the new icon can be seen if you use Chrome Canary (the developer version of Chrome), but it will start rolling out for everyone else over the next few months.
There are also some new icons for the beta and developer versions of the Chrome logo, with the most dramatic change being a blueprint-style icon for the beta app on iOS. From 2008 until now, the Chrome logo has been getting gradually simpler.
