Google material design


Google is all set to tease the upcoming Material Design update across all of Android. An early peek at how Google is planning to refresh the look of its own Android apps was available. Two designers, who were associated with Google earlier, have created a video. It shows off some conceptual images for the future of the Google Photos, Google Maps, and Gmail apps. Ron Amadeo from Ars Technica has broken down the changes and setting up the prospective new look against the existing one, and it is great. One can note that there are several placeholder items in the designs; it suggests that they are far from final. However, the video has been removed as it became popular, which is another sign that at least there is a strong indication of Google’s real intent in it.

In the video, it can be seen that the biggest difference is the round-edged rectangle corners and removing solid colour blocks as design elements. Now, the fresh new look of Google Photos looks much like Instagram: minimalistic interface with rampant white space. It’s safe to call it too much white space. You will no longer be able to see the top red banner on Gmail. It also handles image attachments and email threads in a much elegant way. The team at captured the video and you can watch the video below.
