Google brings Material Design to G Suite

Google brings Material Design to G Suite

Google is transferring more and more products to Material Design. This is the design language that underlies more and more of the tech giant’s products. Now the design comes to Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Sites. Last year, Google started testing this update on the G Suite-apps, when a new design came out for Google Drive.

This update does not involve any new features. So it’s really a visual update, where Google adds the new design to its G Suite-apps. The update brings with it different fonts for the interface, slightly modified buttons and new icons. Furthermore, Google has chosen new colours here and there.

Today, Google started rolling out the new design for G Suite subscribers who have their accounts on the Rapid Release schedule. Anyone who joins in can expect the update within the next fifteen days. Users whose system administrators are a little less eager to jump on such updates and whose account is on the Schedules Release schedule can expect the new design around February 11th.

When the new design exactly rolls out to users who use Google’s free services is not certain. At the same time, there seems to be a good chance that the company also wants to provide those users with the update as early as next month. The completion of Google’s large-scale project to transfer all its products to Material Design is therefore slowly coming to an end.

In recent months, Google has introduced the new design language to most of the mobile apps and web services it has brought. Google Calendar is one of the most recent apps that has been updated with this update. The fact that the G Suite-apps now get it, makes the company almost ready.
