Google I/O 2015 app Updated in Beta with Full Material Design
Every year at about a month before one of Google’s biggest events, I/O, happens we see a update and redesign of the app used to follow all the news. Last year we were treated to the (yet-to-be-named) half-material app, and this year the app has finally been fully updated to embrace material to the fullest. What other changes await us inside?
The new update is an actual Beta update, bringing the app to version 3.1.2. The way some users got the beta invite was by signing up last year to receive future updates to the app. Besides seeing more material elements all over the place, we’re not seeing the “People I’ve Met” section that was housed about the “Social” category in the slide-out menu, likely due to little-to-no use.
Another change is located in the “Map” section where tapping on a marker produces a schedule of all the session held at that particular location for the day. The last user-facing changes that we were able to locate are simple reorganizing of various sections in the app, such as: Explore, Videos, Social and more.
Be sure to grab this update when you can to get the latest info as far as Google I/O goes. How do you like the slight but new changes?
