An update to the Google News app for tablets is bringing Material You integration. This is a welcomed improvement because this application has been on the waitlist to get these beautification features. But why has there been a delay to integrate the Material You feature into the News app?
Well, Google has been giving its various apps access to this feature gradually. Once Material You became available with Android 12, most Google apps began integrating it into their designs. This feature helps to unify the app interface’s primary colour with the device’s overall theme.
But, the rollout has been a gradual process, with more Google apps getting it over time. Now, the Google News app for tablets is getting Material You integration. Let’s take a look at all the changes that come with this app upgrade.
Google News app for tablets gets design improvements and Material You integration
The News app update for tablets packs lots of cool new features. These include a brushed-up design and changes to the button and navigation rail layouts. Details on the redesign of this tablet app were shared on the Google News Telegram channel.
With this upgrade comes the Material Design 3 components. This helps separate the header from the navigation rail with a rounded corner container. Even the search bar now gets a new design with rounded edges, helping to unify the user interface.
The navigation rail that used to be at the base of the tablet version of Google’s News app is now on at the left-hand corner. This will make it more accessible for tablet users in landscape orientation. These improvements are only visible when the tablet is in landscape orientation.
Users of the Google News app for tablets can start enjoying these upgrades. All they need to do is simply head over to the Play Store and install the update to the app. The mobile Google News app might also get an update, bringing these Material You integrations.
