Google proceeds to little by little roll out Material Design 2. visible refreshes to its apps with Maps at last ditching its hamburger menu for a base tab bar.


Amongst Google‘s massive array of cellular applications have a few challenges with visible style consistency, and the business proceeds to slowly and gradually bring them collectively, the most up-to-date currently being in Maps which experienced earlier managed the stylings of Google’s older 2015 Material Design 1. visual language.

Google is currently tests a alternative of Maps’ hamburger menu (slide-in from the left) with a bottom tab bar when a handful of of the other toggles have been switched to floating buttons on the UI or included to the consumer icon menu.

Google is leaning extra towards bottom tab bars these days both of those for reachability, but also as quite a few laymen buyers can completely overlook the existence of hamburger menus, although I wouldn’t be shocked if the alternatives moved to the user icon menu were being similarly missed by individuals.

While only a rather little visual adjust, the screening update which will most likely get to shoppers soon brings Maps in line with most of the company’s other applications which have generally abandoned hamburger menus once Google’s favourite UI aspect.
