Google Search seems to be testing a new search bar design on mobile search. The bar shows the images, videos, news, shopping, maps, etc buttons but with a light blue background color, as a curved button.

I noticed it on Friday and then again on Saturday, when signed into on mobile Safari on iOS. Thomas Eccel and Adriaan Dekker also spotted it on Friday and posted about it on X and LinkedIn.

Here is a screenshot of the new search bar test:

Here is what Google is currently running for that query:
