Android 12 Beta testers noticed the new interface of Gmail app with the ‘Material You’ interface. In addition to Gmail’s layout changes, users can also find other minor updates such as an improved notification panel and quick access buttons.
There are only a few weeks left before Android 12 is released, with the final version expected to be available on first devices in October four weeks after Google’s last beta launch, so developers are already working on their apps to take advantage of the new features as soon as possible.
The most significant new feature, which users will notice as soon as they update their phones, is its major redesign under the name ‘Material You.’ The dynamic Android user interface will now change the colors of the interface to our wallpaper.
This is the new Gmail interface with ‘Material You
Some Android 12 Beta testers have noticed that the Gmail app has modified its appearance to match the colors of their wallpaper. In this situation, as in all others where Google has implemented it, ‘Material You’ adjusts the color of the search bar, menus, and buttons to match those of the background.
It’s likely that over the next weeks, Google will update each of its applications to “Material You,” allowing the most important apps on Android 12 to take advantage of this feature. The Gmail, Contacts, Phone, Messages, Gboard, and Chrome applications are already using it or are in the process of doing so right now. However, Google Maps and the Play Store are almost certain to follow.
