Google Workspace apps on Android get Material You update

Google is rolling out Material You: a new design system for Google Workspace apps on Android devices. Material You features an updated, fresh look and feel for your apps, along with additional options for personalization. 

Some changes you’ll notice are:

  • updated navigation bars,
  • improved floating action buttons, and
  • use of Google Sans text for better readability in smaller font sizes

On Pixel devices with Android 12 or newer, you’ll have the option to match the colors of your apps to your device wallpaper for a more dynamic, personalized look.

To expand upon the existing accessibility support, Material You will automatically adjust contrast, size, and line width based on user preferences and app context. Pre-existing color schemes, for example, color-coded file types, folder colors, or in-app warnings, will remain unchanged.

These changes are available on Gmail version 2021.08.24 and newer.

These changes will be available on Meet version 2021.09.19 and newer starting September 19.

These changes are available on Drive version 2.21.330 and newer.

These changes are available on Docs, Sheets and Slides version 1.21.342 and newer.

These changes are available on Google Calendar version 2021.37 and newer.

Available for Keep version 5.21.361. and newer beginning September 21.

This new UI update is available to all Google Workspace customers, including G Suite Basic and Business customers as well as users with personal Google accounts.
