Google has been rolling out cosmetic upgrades for many of its products in the past weeks, and the latest to get one is Blogger. The new interface update maintains the similar look and feel seen in all other products updated so far, which are Google homepage, Gmail and Google Maps.
Just like the new Gmail interface, you now have large buttons and cleaner text listings in the Blogger dashboard. Also there’s a quick access button for account management that’s accessible from all pages.
The Overview page has got an incredible new look. Now you can instantly view your blog’s status in real-time right on the page, and see other updates like total comments awaiting moderation, published comments, total posts and more. All other required links are easily accessible in a neat sidebar.
New Post page:
Currently the new interface is just in the Blogger Draft section, which is Blogger’s equivalent to “Google Labs.” If you want to get a taste of it before its available to everyone, simply head to draft.blogger.com.

This new update is gone. I didn’t change any settings. However, it’s gone. Did Google rolled back the update?
No, it is available, but currently only in “Blogger in Draft.” You can access it here http://draft.blogger.com, and while you are there tick “Make Blogger in Draft my default” checkbox to make that your default dashboard.
