Well, Today Google previewed the Developer version of the Android L, Google’s Matias Duarte, introduced the brand new “Material Design”.

The design is meant to offer a more consistent, universal look-and-feel across mobile, tablets, desktop and “beyond,” the company explains. In its onstage demo, Google showed new animations that are designed to present the maximum amount of content while ensuring that scrolling remains smooth.

“Unlike real paper, our digital material can expand and reform intelligently. Material has physical surfaces and edges. Seams and shadows provide meaning about what you can touch,” says Matias Durate, Google’s director of Android user experience. Android L also comes with a new personal unlocking feature, which can allow users to bypass security mechanisms based on a variety of factors like bluetooth, location, etc. The company is also introducing new redesigned versions of Google’s flagship apps using this new language, including Gmail and Calendar, for both Android and the web.
