Google will remove the black navigation bar at the top of it’s services, and replace it with the same cool app launcher that the latest Chrome dev channel version has on the start page. This app launcher looks very much like an Android-styled app launcher. And personally I think it’s one more step to blend Android and Chrome. And I like it. A lot.
In case you didn’t notice, they actually look exactly the same to the related icons on Android. Right down to the recently updated YouTube icon and all.
In a recent Google+ post showing off the new design we got confirmation right from a Googler. Community Manager Justine Rivero dropped in and said, “Glad you noticed! We’ll be rolling out this new feature in the next few weeks… stay tuned!”
