The New Google Bar Replaces the Black Bar that we have gotten to know and love or hate over the last year or so. This new bar unifies how you use Google products by making navigation consistent across Google’s products and services. So it looks like the roll out will be coming in the days and weeks to come. I can’t say much about it until I use it myself but the unification of the look, feel and navigation across the Google ecosystem has been a long time coming. Below is the Google youtube video that explains the change.
I wonder across how many products that the new Nav bar functions on and I wish I could customize it for my needs in browser so I see only what makes the most sense. If they were to think the bar a bit to maximize space I think it would be more helpful but I reserve judgement until I can use it for myself.
