With Beta 3 earlier this week, Google’s upcoming design language will appear in several locations throughout the operating system. Some Android 12 users are now watching Gboard Material You redesign live.
Update 7/20: The gboard material you redesign, with the “Dynamic Color” option in the “Theme” settings, will be shown to more people today after last week’s first availability. However, it is not available to all users yet.
That said, many people are seeing the Google Sans font in Gboard on Android 12. Older devices are not seeing this change yet. Capital letters ̵
Original 7/16: As we previously enabled last month, the Google keyboard redesign varies depending on whether you have enabled “Key Limits”. If you do not, will ‘? The 123 ‘key and the space bar are placed in pill-shaped buttons and get a rather dull hue based on your system color.
In the meantime, the return key is the same, but – along with the “expand” key in the top suggestion strip – is much lighter and vibrant in color. The gesture test is similar and quite wonderful with theme.
If borders are activated, ‘return’ and ‘expand’ are the brightest keys and are placed in circles. ‘123?’ is also a circle and quite dark. However, there is a third level of key theme that splits between the other two shades of Caps Lock, comma, period and setback. Finally, the background is themed, while all other keys are lighter / white.
A handful of users see this Gboard Material you are redesigning, but it is not yet widely available. Both beta and stable channel Gboard users are facing this phased rollout. For more color samples, check out our post last month.
Google’s keyboard app has undergone a number of A / B tests in recent months, including a variant that used a sheet. However, we believe that this seems to be the final design.
