Category: Material Design

Google announced Material Design on June 25, 2014, at the 2014 Google I/O conference. Material Design can be used in API Level 21 (Android 5.0) and newer via the v7 appcompat library, which is used on virtually all Android devices manufactured after 2009.

Material Design will gradually be extended throughout Google’s array of web and mobile products, providing a consistent experience across all platforms and applications. Google has also released application programming interfaces (APIs) for third-party developers to incorporate the design language into their applications.
