Just a few days ago it was considered highly unlikely that Google would show off a new version of Android at I/O. Yesterday the rumors started swirling to suggest we would see Android “L” announced today. Well, here we are, and Google has just announced Android L Development preview. Check out the video below of the new design language.
This new deisgn language is a departure from the “Holo UI.” It’s called “Material Design,” and it has more color, depth, animations, and cards. Google is releasing this design to developers today. Google didn’t talk about core features of Android L, or even tell us what the “L” stands for. This was just an early look at the new design we can expect with it. Android L will see a full release this fall. Do you like it? What do you think of the new navbar buttons?
