Cloud Logging is introducing a new user interface for analyzing logs data: Logs Viewer (Preview). It is more responsive and introduces new features for letting you quickly and efficiently retrieve, view, and analyze logs from your queries.
While the Logs Viewer (Preview) is being enhanced, the Logs Viewer (Classic) will continue to be maintained. You can switch back and forth between the Logs Viewer (Classic) and the Logs Viewer (Preview) when analyzing logs.
