Changes Coming to the Google Drive User Interface - Web Version

Earlier this week I posted the reminder that the Google Drive desktop app is being phased out this month. Yesterday, Google announced that there's another change coming to Google Drive. That change is a cosmetic change to the Google Drive user interface that you will see when you access Google Drive through your web browser.

The changes to the browser version of Google Drive include:
  • Repositioning of the "settings" icon to be inline with the search bar.
  • A new "new" button in the upper, left corner of the screen. 
  • Changes to the fonts used for headers.
  • A white background replaces the gray background. 

The following GIF provided by Google shows an overview of the updates. 

These changes will start to appear in about two weeks.
