It’s Google’s new take on design, as well as merging the styles that exist between its platforms. The design principle, called “Material Design”, is a flat set of iconography with tons of popping colors and animations at 60 frames-per-second. This also sets guidelines for all of the designs that developers put forward, so that the experience isn’t as fragmented as it is now. For example, Google’s Android Gmail and Calendar apps will receive the Material redesign, as well the rest of their app library.
