Why Google has to change the Icons in the new Android KitKat? Google's engineer have all the answers

Considering the older version of Android, the notification bar and the status used to be in different colors, depending upon the connectivity or no connectivity.The notification was green in color in that of Android Gingerbread 2.3 and then changed into blue in ice-cream sandwich.Then why Google felt the need of changing the icon colors and its status bar? It turns into white in color when there's a connection established between the Wi-fi device and the phone, but if you wanna check the status then you have to go into notification bar and then in to the settings to check the status. It will turn into orange color when you're not connected. But the world has now some questions in their minds about the need of making these changes.
Google's engineer Dan Sandler has the answers.



According to Dan, the main reason of changing the color is to minimize the issue of the previous blue color bar, which showed some problems while interacting with some backgrounds. The white color fits the best in all the interfaces of any color.

The other reason was to exhale out the issues from the users who were facing some problems with the blue color in recognizing the connected or not connected status.The last issue is to resolve the power consumption from the OS, so it all bumped in to the notification bar to resolve the issues.
