Perhaps you have heard about Material You and many more in recent years. It is about the environment or graphic line that Google has created to implement on all platforms, from the web to mobile phones. In that sense, the most recent beta of Android 12 has shown that native Google apps will capture the design of Material You.
This implies a substantial change in the appearance of the applications that we commonly use and that are part of the Android factory package.
Android 12 native apps will be under Material You
In May of this year, Google announced that Android 12 would bring a new graphical environment based on Material You. In that statement, the advantages that this would bring to the user experience compared to the interface were broadly made known. Smoother movements and animations, redesigned widgets and changes in the layout of the space. Overall, Material You is a great addition with cool features like creating color harmony throughout the interface based on the wallpaper.
This tells us about the ability to generate a completely customized environment that Android 12 will have. But the great news now is that we are not only talking about system areas such as the main screen or the notification bar. According to what was announced by Google a few days ago, the native apps will also have the Material You design.
In that sense, Gmail, Google Meet, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Calendar will occupy Material You for their graphic line. So far, only Google Meet and Calendar are missing, which will be updated on September 19 and 20. However, at the moment it will only be available for Pixel devices with Android 12. However, Google plans to bring its new graphical environment also to Chromebooks and their applications on the web.
