"We wanted to take a step back to simplify a bit so people could find what they’re looking for faster and more easily. I find it really refreshing. We want to let the search results shine, allowing people to focus on the information instead of the design elements around it," Aileen Cheng, a designer at Google said.

In the new update, Google will place content on a clean background to make sure the users do not get overwhelmed by the heavy backgrounds. The new design will also be bouncier and more lively.
