Google Play Store gets Material You dynamic colors on Android 12
Shortly after introducing its new Material You design language at I / O 2021, Google began making design changes to its apps based on the new guidelines. With the stable version of Android 12 for Google Pixels around the corner, the company has significantly accelerated the rollout of Material You. We recently saw updates from Material You for Google Assistant, Google Photos, Google Duo, and Google Drive. There were also updates from Material You for Google Keep, then Google Messages and Google Podcasts. Now it looks like the Google Play Store is next to get the Material You vibrant color theme on Android 12.
The update for the Google Play Store (via the Google News Telegram Group) seems to be rolled out to some people now and supports dynamic colors. This is apparently a server-side switch and the deployment can take a while for everyone. So the version of your Play Store app won’t make any difference. You can definitely increase your chances of getting the update by making sure you’re using the latest version of the app, but that’s all you can do. I don’t have the update on my Google Pixel 5 running the latest beta of Android 12.
For the uninitiated, Material You’s dynamic colors feature uses monet, a new theme engine introduced in Android 12 – and currently exclusive to Pixel phones – to extract colors from your wallpaper and generate a rich palette of colors. pastel colors. Applications can then apply these colors to their user interfaces in a number of ways, which applications that integrate hardware typically do. Dynamic color support is one of the most exciting things to come from Material You, as it makes the design of every app more personal. It also maintains consistency between apps and makes your smartphone experience more consistent.
If you don’t have the update yet, don’t worry, you will probably have it soon.
