Google’s Material You Design Rolling Out To Gmail, Calendar, And Docs App

Google is now starting to roll out its new Material You design system to Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and more apps.

Google is finally rolling out the new Material You design to a few of its most popular platforms such as Gmail, Google Docs, Calendar, and more. The Material You design will bring a host of new changes which will bring better overall animations, new buttons. The design changes were already made available in Google Drive, Sheets, and Slides.

As per The Verge, the new look will include changes to navigation bars, improved action buttons, and Google’s Sans text for better readability.

It’s part of the bigger Android 12 redesign that includes big, bubbly buttons, shifting colors, smoother animations, and some overhauls to built-in apps.

The design changes mean Pixel devices with Android 12 or newer will be able to match the colors inside apps like Gmail, Google Meet, and Google Drive with their wallpapers for what Google calls a “more dynamic, personalized look.”

Existing color schemes and color-coded file types and folders will remain unchanged within the apps, though.

The end result is subtle but colorful changes to apps like Gmail, Calendar, and Docs. Google has really leaned further into rounded corners here, and the changes are mostly aesthetic, meaning button placements and core navigation won’t be changing.
