Back in the nineties, Google started as an Internet company with a single product, but these days, the Mountain View-based firm is a fully fledged tech giant with investments in a broad range of industries. In order to adapt to this ongoing expansion, Google often made radical changes, both in terms of management structure and its product lineup. As the company's portfolio grew quite a bit in recent years, Google now decided to redesign the "Our Products" section of its About page. The new and improved section features material design and is quite pleasant to look at. Google's flagship products including Search, Chrome, Home, and the Pixel phones are displayed in an interactive carousel located at the top of the new "Our Products" section.
Beneath that highlight reel, Google decided to replace the old categories like Business, Web, Media, Geo, and Specialized Search with categories described in layman's terms. For example, the new "Get Answers" category showcases Google Search, Maps, Translate, and Chrome, while the "Stay in Touch" one displays Google Allo, Hangouts, and the company's other communications solutions. It's an interesting design approach and one that mimics Google's recent decision to deliver a broader range of its products to a mainstream audience. Even the company's professional and enterprise solutions are now described in easily understood categories such as "Grow Your Business" and "Work Smarter."
Each of these categories highlights four of Google's services, all of which are accompanied by an icon, a relevant product link, another link to technical support, and a screenshot of their Android app. Interestingly enough, the latter was taken on the 2014 Motorola Nexus 6, and not one of Google's latest flagships. However, the company's hardware offerings got their own section titled "Do more with devices made by Google." If you're not a fan of this new design, navigating to the bottom of the "Our Products" section will allow you to click on a "See All Products" link. That link will lead you to another page on which you'll be able to browse all of Google's offerings, as well as filter them by solutions made for businesses and developers. This material design update to Google's product page rolled out in a quiet manner without any special announcements, but if you want to check it out, you can do so by following the source link below.
