Underneath the pill-shaped bar on the outcomes web page, the 9 Search filters are actually accompanied by icons: All, News, Videos, Maps, Images, Shopping, Books, Flights, and Finance.

That first Search class contains a magnifying glass within the 4 Google colours of purple, inexperienced, blue, and yellow. These pictograms conform to the Material Theme fashion by having daring outlines and principally hole interiors. The icons are darkish grey when not chosen, and match their corresponding merchandise, particularly Google Maps and News.

Categories are organized primarily based on relevance to the search question, with solely 5 proven at a time. “More” makes use of a vertical hamburger icon, whereas the dropdown panel options rounded corners.
