Earlier this year, Google Chrome, including the Android version, has received a visual update to bring it in line with the latest Google Material Theme style unveiled in I / O 2018. One of the characteristics of the Google Material Theme, Set in a host of other programs, the "Google Sans" type was not part of Chrome redesign. This seems to change very soon as Google Sans comes to Chrome for Android.
Following a new code change, embedded in the Chromium Gerrit source code, Google Sans is added as a font for Chrome for Android. While it's interesting to itself, like Chrome OS that receives the same font, Chrome for Android also sets Google Sans as the font to be used by a handful of important, basic user interfaces, including BlackHeadline and BlackButtonText.
To ensure Google Sans sees maximum use, the developer who wrote the obligation can also reset a wide variety of texts around Chrome for Android to use the default BlackHeadline style. This means that we will soon see Google Sans used in places like Bookmarks, Contacts, Downloads, and History.
While the change has not yet landed, it's a simple preview of what Google Sans will see (probably) like when it comes to Chrome for Android sometime in the coming weeks / months.
As you may see, it does not look too different from the font already in Chrome today, but sometimes it's the subtle things that really count
