New UI Features of Google Docs

The new Google Docs  App does not have  the blue title bar and now features the same all-white look we’ve have for all other Google products.

There is a  four-colored  floating + button to create new documents(same like Gmail App). There is also the new colorful Google Docs logo in the middle of the top bar, and the sorting method has been moved down below that.

The Google document editor page doesn’t offer a lot of new features, aside from a bit more white in the formatting bar.In Document information screen, there are no toggles/options for link sharing, offline status, or starring, but the options are still there hidden there.

What is Material Design?

Material Design is a visual language that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation of technology and science.Material Design is inspired by the physical world and its textures, including how they reflect light and cast shadows. Material surfaces reimagine the mediums of paper and ink.

More about Google’s material Design can be learnt from its official documentation site.

Current UI drawback

There is no visible option to rename a document or share it with another Docs user, though they could have been moved around or integrated in other menus.

Also Dark mode is nowhere to be seen as of right now.

New material design UI in nutshell

Othe then the Google Docs app.In  Google files, the app bar is similarly white like the Google Docs and also merges with the system status bar for a very clean look. There is also splattering of new icons here.

Its good to see that Google is now trying its best to make their UI consistent throughout their applications.
