Google’s begun tweaking the “Material Design” GUI on Android and desktop search engine apps. Visual intuitive icons for search engine content help developers create a better “natural human interface” including news and image apps. Google search is becoming more visual now says James Dean @ SocialCommerceApps.com. Google’s material design is the natural GUI for a better customer experience on mobile devices.
Google 2016 release of the material design spec includes the following new sections:
- Motion includes detailed examples and specs on material motion principles, duration and easing, transformations, choreography, and customization.
- Growth & communications contains guidance on user engagement, retention, and acquisition.
- Expansion panels guidance describes lightweight containers used for creating flows and editing content.
