That new Google Assistant logo

Watched the launch of the Google Pixel phone yesterday and couldn't help but notice that new Google Assistant logo/icon.

I'm... just really not digging it. It reminded me of when you try out a new drawing app for the first time and just point and drag random circles all over the canvas. And the circles were just there, supposedly in place of a user avatar (is that how an AI assistant is supposed to look like?), all static and unexpectedly unlively.
