Google’s huge display optimization push continues with the Seek app adopting a navigation rail on drugs, regardless that it’s obviously early days.
The newest Google app beta — model 13.46 — switches to a navigation rail. With out the ground bar, you get to peer somewhat extra of the Uncover feed, in addition to Seek effects.
Then again, this isn’t a Subject matter You (MD3) part because the icons for Uncover, Seek, and Collections don’t use a pill-shaped indicator, which may be the case for Google TV lately. Your present tab is solely highlighted blue as an alternative of grey. The 3 parts are situated kind of the place you’d position your thumb as an alternative of being precisely on the most sensible, backside, and even center-aligned.
In the meantime, there’s rather slightly of padding between the navigation and the place content material begins. This might use some adjustment in long term variations. For comparability, the Google app at the iPad makes use of a backside bar.
It’s a just right get started, however additional UI tweaks and optimizations are wanted. We in the past enabled an M3 redesign of the Google app that are meant to additionally observe to the pill format.
Google Podcasts already includes a two-column format (regardless that a Subject matter You backside bar is used), whilst Lens helps panorama orientation. Extra lately, Google Climate used to be in a similar way up to date after in the past simplest operating in portrait.
