Finally! Google's Blogger gets a UI refresh on Android and Web after three years

Google’s Blogger service is one of the popular content management system for the internet users and creators who wish to set up their own blog or website with limited technical knowledge. However, throughout the years, Google has not given it much attention by keeping updates and new features to a minimum – allowing its competitors such as WordPress and Medium to bask in the limelight by constantly providing users with the best service.

But surprisingly, Google has not forgotten or abandoned the blog-publishing service that it acquired in 2003. In fact, the company is rolling out a major refresher to the Blogger app for Android – its first update since 2016.

According to the Peggy K, the new Blogger v3.0.1 app for Android will come with a full redesign that would boast a modernized look. In addition, the updated app will also include an improved icon that would support Android’s adaptive icon feature as well.

When it comes to functionality, the users can expect most of the same features such as log-ins, management of multiple blogs – it all remains untouched. Nevertheless, it looks much better than the previous interface and is compatible with all the latest versions of Android.

Of course, you need to use the web version (or third-party apps) for the advanced features of Blogger, as this is indeed a basic app for mobile users.

According to 9to5Google, the new app is built using the Flutter.

When it comes to web version, Blogger team is encouraging users through dashboard settings to try the new look.
