Google’s Material Design is about to change the way we look at the worldwide web

July 30th, 2014 at 3:55 PM
Google Drive Material Design Update

Android L’s Material Design is not reserved only to the Android operating system or Google’s mobile apps, as the company wants to use the same design principles it formally unveiled at its I/O developers conference this year across the web. Furthermore, the company wants app developers to include the same Material Design elements in their own apps, and Google has so far showed what Material Design apps are supposed to look like. To further showcase Material Design, this time on a functional web page rather than by providing just concept images, Google has updated its Google Drive home pages (for Docs, Sheets and Slides) to Material Design.

Google announced the changes in a Google+ post titled. “Home screens for Docs, Sheets, and Slides are officially here!

“Now when you visit http://www.google.com/docs, http://www.google.com/sheets, or http://www.google.com/slides, you’ll find an easy way to get back to your most relevant and recently edited documents, spreadsheets, and presentations,” the company said, encouraging users to try out the new “+” button that hovers over the page – a Material Design element – to “quickly create something new.”

Other changes should be immediately noticeable to regular Google Drive users, including the simplified menu and extensive use of colors, as seen in the image above.

Google will be deploying Material Design across its online services, whether websites or mobile apps, by the end of the year, when Android L is also supposed to be rolled out.
