Google has begun teasing that its sign-in page is about to receive a redesign. If you’ve logged into your Google account before, you’re going to notice some differences very soon!
The sign-in page is the first thing people see when they want to access their Gmail, Drive, or other Google services. It’s important that the design is clean, and simple and guides users through login easily.
According to tweets from Google’s design team, the new sign-in page will have larger text and images for better visibility. Color contrast has been improved to meet accessibility standards.
Navigation has also been streamlined. Instead of multiple buttons and links, there will be big centralized buttons to Sign In or Create Account. Forgot password and other options are now easier to find in the footer.
Google claims testing shows people log in much faster with the refreshed design. Loading speeds have also increased thanks to lightweight coding.
The goal is to make authentication a “pleasant” experience instead of a hurdle. If you access Google a lot, keep an eye out for the new sign-in page soon! Google wants logging in to feel smooth as butter every time.
