Empathy’s new icon

Bid adieu to the telepathic blue twins of old: Instant messenger Empathy has had a logo-revamp…

Empathy's new icon

Why the need? Collabora‘s Guillaume Desmottes explains: –

“Since its first release, Empathy was using the Telepathy logo as icon. This icon suffers different problems, the main ones being its look in smaller sizes. Also, 2 blue heads may not be the best way to present an IM client to users. So, after lot of discussions and different propositions, Empathy has now, thanks to Jakub Steiner, a new icon!”

Is this update an improvement to your eyes? It certainly isn’t to mine…
