Google shows the stuff you redesign in Calendar, Drive, and more

Google showed updates from Material You He targeted various Workspace apps, including Google Calendar, Drive, Docs, Gmail, Sheets, and Slides.

For starters, Google confirmed that Gmail would get its Material You redesign with version 2021.08.24 and newer on devices running Android 12 and later (which, at this point, should be just phones in the beta program).

In addition to confirming which version of Gmail would see the update, Google showed the material it seeks for other applications. The search giant showed three screenshots for its apps, the first being the current layout, followed by the Material You layout, and then Material You with dynamic color.

First of all, Google’s calendar is getting a slight redesign that basically modifies the look of the header bar and the floating action button (FAB) in the lower right corner. Google Meet is getting an equally basic change that really only affects the shape and color of the buttons. Google Cal changes will start rolling out on September 20, while Meet changes will start rolling out on September 19.

Google Drive and the Slides, Sheets, and Docs apps are getting slightly more significant updates. Drive will see the search bar, navigation bar, and FAB changed, while the other three will apply dynamic colors to pretty much everything but the document itself. Google notes that Material You will extend existing accessibility support by automatically adjusting the contrast, size, and line width based on user preferences. Pre-existing color schemes, such as color-coded file types, will not change.

Google Drive changes started rolling out on September 9, while Docs, Sheets, and Slides started rolling out on September 1. However, it could take up to 15 days for all these changes to be implemented before they appear on people’s devices.
