Google Fi launches straightforward Material You redesign on Android

Following widget weaks last year, Google Fi has now redesigned its Android app with Material You. It’s a straightforward modernization, as the company is almost done renewing its biggest apps visually.

The most prominent change is Google Fi’s bottom bar with Material Yous high design and pill-shaped indicators utilized. Different buttons are now pills instead of rounded rectangles, although cards with important information at the top of the “Account” feed are unchanged.

There are Dynamic Color themes everything, including avatar icons for people and devices. This renewal comes after Google recently updated the cover art that appears at the top of each tab after keeping it the same for several years.

Overall, this is a small modernization that brings Fi in line with the vast majority of Google apps today. As such, the pace has slowed down, although there are still a few survivors. Google Maps still does not utilize Dynamic Color, while it is still unclear whether Fit will get a redesign in light of Fitbit. Google Home could use a new bottom bar, while there is room for the Play Store to have more flourishes.

We discovered the change with version V60, which was released a week ago for Google Play, by the Android app. There appears to be a server-side component, as we only see the Google Fi material you update live on Pixel phones today.

It follows Google’s MVNO, which cuts prices on its two “unlimited” plans and adds more high-speed data ahead of its seventh anniversary.
