Android 15 Might Bring Back a Certain Design Feature


Google’s occasional habit of injecting changes into its many software products and services is something that’s usually hit or miss with a lot of users. This looks to be the case as seen with the Android 15 Developer Preview, which lets users install an “experimental” version of Android 15 onto their devices.

With that in mind, Google might be planning on switching things up again, with regards to Android’s user interface. The folks over at Android Authority report that we might see changes to the status bar icon designs, at least according to the current Android 15 preview. Users who have been on Android since the days of version 5.0 might remember Google beginning to implement its “Material” design language, which eventually developed in “Material You.”

As such, the status bar icons have since looked mostly the same, appearing as shapes without any segmentation. With the Android 15 preview however, Google has changed the icons to feature a segmented look, resembling their appearance on older versions of Android. This can be seen on the photo below:

Earlier on, it was also reported that we might see changes to Android 15’s on-screen volume slider, which will now shift to a horizontal layout across the screen. With all that being said, it looks like Android 15 will be arriving with a ton of changes to the UI.
