Hangouts using Open Sans

2 Attachments

So I've been talking to Marshall Bock a little on Twitter about Open Sans instead of Roboto for Hangouts and I decided to try it out.

Frankly, I think Roboto is too mechanical and the capital S looks upside-down. I like this a hell of a lot more and I wish that Google would fully embrace Open Sans instead of relegating it to stuff like the Google Fiber site.

The full-size attachment has, surprisingly, more to see. There's also a side-by-side comparison with Open Sans (left) and Roboto (right). So check them out.

I will admit that Open Sans Regular is a little light, but it looks better and it's a Google font, damn it.
