In July 2004, the GE logo underwent a color change to blue, coinciding with the debut of the Inspira font.

In 2021, General Electric announced plans to cease being a conglomerate and to split into three separate companies. GE HealthCare, which comprises their existing health care business, was spun off on January 4, 2023. GE Vernova, which comprises GE's energy business, was spun off on April 2, 2024. This left the company with their remaining division, GE Aerospace, which became the legal successor to the original General Electric Company.
