Google Phone v23 brings an updated Material UI to match Contacts’ [APK Download]

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Google Contacts got a UI revamp two days ago, and we'd been wondering when the Google Phone would get a matching refresh. The wondering ends now - Phone v23 beta has just been released, giving us a look at the latest and greatest phone interface from Google.

As with the Contacts refresh, there don't appear to be any changes in functionality. There are still four tabs on the bottom, and the settings menu appears to have the same contents.

Google rolls out Contacts v3.0 with new Material interface [APK Download]

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

If there's anything Android users want, it's more white UI elements. Oh, is that not what you meant with your repeated calls for a dark mode? Google thought you were being sarcastic. As such, it has launched another redesigned app with an all-white Material interface. Get ready for Contacts 3.0 to sear your retinas.

The app itself appears to have all the same menu options and settings. The difference here is that it adopts Google's new Material Design style. The blue top bar is gone, replaced with a white section that transitions seamlessly into the scrollable contact list.

Check out this cool video teaser showcasing Google’s modern use of Material Design

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018

Material Design isn't some immutable standard. It's a flowing, breathing, evolving design. As our own former editor Liam (now a Googler) pointed out today, the current expressions we've seen of Google Material are just one potential way to implement the changing design philosophy. So if you're eager to check the possible futures for Google's Material designs, you should probably watch this video.

It's short, but it's pretty slick, reminding us of the original video announcement which accompanied the I/O 2014 reveal for Material Design.

Hangouts Chat desktop interface gets Material Design refresh

Friday, July 20th, 2018

At Google I/O earlier this year, the company officially introduced refreshed Material Design guidelines along with new theming tools. This was consistent with new visual elements that had already been creeping into Google products like the new Gmail, with Chrome soon to be extensively reworked, too. Hangouts Chat is G Suite's answer to Slack, and it's now getting some new Material tweaks as well.

As you can see from the comparison images below, it's not a radical overhaul, although it is indicative of changes we're likely to see come to other Google properties.

[Update: Slight delay, ready now] You’re not being phished—Google is rolling out a new sign-in page

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Google has slowly but surely been updating its web features to use material design principles. Some of these updates have been more successful than others. The company is now undertaking a simple but potentially treacherous update: the sign-in page. G Suite users will start seeing the new page soon, and it'll probably reach everyone eventually.

The new sign-in screen has an updated logo, and all the text is center-aligned.

Google Pay web app redesign now rolling out

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

When Android Pay was renamed to Google Pay earlier this year, the Google Wallet site (which allows you to send and receive money, as well as manage payment methods) also became Google Pay. However, the desktop site didn't get the same redesign that the mobile apps did - until now.

The web app now has the same Google Material Theme that the company's other apps are now using, like Maps.

[Update: Status bar has also been tweaked] Android P DP4 refreshes entire UI’s iconography by removing fill

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

We'd thought that the latest Android P developer preview wouldn't be seeing very many visual changes given that it's the fourth of its kind, but it looks like we were wrong. DP4 has brought a pretty extensive iconography refresh, removing the fill from icons across the entire interface.

This change was first spotted when we compared the gesture nav button designs earlier today, but we just kept noticing more and more examples of it.
