The 2015 update of the Google logo is the biggest overhaul in Google's logo history.

Google has refined its famous logo as it prepares to become a part of a new holding company called Alphabet. The new logo in a font called "Product Sans" is the sixth since the technology giant was founded 17 years ago in 1998 (seventh if we take in account the pre-launch 1997 variant).
