Google is making the first major update to the company's logo in 16 years. But the reason is pretty simple.

"Today we're introducing a new logo and identity family that reflects this reality and shows you when the Google magic is working for you, even on the tiniest screens," Google says in a blog post announcing the change.

The company says the original logo and branding were created for a single desktop browser page, and as we all know, mobile is the #future.

The logo will also be interactive.

"For example, new elements like a colorful Google mic help you identify and interact with Google whether you're talking, tapping or typing. Meanwhile, we're bidding adieu to the little blue "g" icon and replacing it with a four-color "G" that matches the logo."

Sound good, Google. Now what is that song that goes "dun, dun, dun dun dun?"
