AN­DROID L: A BRAND NEW LOOK FOR GOOGLE

HWM (Singapore) - - LEARN -

Google un­veiled An­droid L at I/O, which in­cludes some 5,000 new APIs. The big­gest change in An­droid L is Ma­te­rial De­sign, a new de­sign aes­thetic that goes be­yond L and rep­re­sents a uni­fied new look and feel for all of Google’s plat­forms, ex­tend­ing from phones to tablets, to the Web and desk­top. Ma­te­rial De­sign adds shad­ows, sub­tle tex­tures and bright col­ors to An­droid, and a shift from square icons to round ones. There’s a dy­namic depth ef­fect too, with apps and in­for­ma­tion boxes slid­ing over each other and dis­ap­pear­ing when closed. Google has also made a slight tweak to its sys­tem-wide Roboto font, which is now a bit wider and rounder, mak­ing it eas­ier to read on small dis­play de­vices like a smartwatch.
