Google announced a new ‘Android L’ design for its mobile operating system today, and it’s got a new layered, shadowed look.
Android L seeks to unify the Android experience on phones, tablets, and smartwatches by using a new “Material Design” aesthetic.
“Material surfaces slide around with the physics of card stock,” said Google’s Vice President of Design, Matias Duarte. “But they respond to touch with splashes of virtual ink that are like ripples in a pond.”
Android L is only available as a developer preview at the moment, but Google has mentioned that it will arrive this fall.
