Blogger, Google’s once famous blogging platform, announced an upcoming improved web design in May 2020. Now Blogger is showcasing a modern and more responsive web design on the web, and it’s quite nice and a bit unexpected despite the previous “calm”. announcement.
Blogger was once a very famous platform for people who wanted to write blogs and share their personal experiences with others on the internet. But after platforms like WordPress and Medium entered into competition, Blogger’s popularity waned. It seemed that even Google had started to ignore the app because there had been hardly any updates on the app for a long time.
However, last year, in October, Google offered a redesign of the Material theme for Blogger for Android. This was a huge surprise to many people as the updated materials theme was very nice and brought the much needed change in the overall design of the app. While it didn’t make any changes in functionality, it was still good to see that Google hadn’t forgotten about its Android app.
Now this new updated web design is fully in line with all the previous Hardware theme redesigns and also provides feature updates.
There is increased spacing in every part of the entire dashboard. Articles are displayed in pale outlines and across a map theme.
The Stats page has been redesigned to help you focus on important blog data, highlighting your most recent blog post.
Comment moderation has been enabled on the redesigned Comments page. On this page, it will be easier for you to connect with your readers and improve your level of engagement with them.
Support for search operators on the new posts page now has improved functionality as it helps you filter your blogger posts and page search results more efficiently and easily.
The new editor page not only introduces support for tables, but also allows for better transliteration and provides a better photo / video upload experience.
With improved playlists, even if you don’t write, it just got easier to read other people’s blogs and have a good time with the app.
Even the Settings page has been improved to help you manage all the controls and actions from one place, without having to switch between tabs.
According to Google, this improved web platform will bring new improvements and features in the future.
This update will roll out to many users later in June 2020, while there is a “Try the New Blogger” button at the bottom of the navigation drawer. From there, you can get a feel for the experience of the new web design. However, if you want to go back to the previous web design, you can always hit “Return to Legacy Blogger” in the same place in the navigation drawer.
However, from the end of July it will no longer be possible to revert to the Legacy Blogger layout.
