‘Material Design’ is meant to give Google’s mobile platform and services a universal look-and-feel, regardless of which device you’re using. The design involves a lot of solid flat colors, shadows and other things that suggest depth, as well as lots of animation. Through this, Google expects to develop a single underlying system that allows for a unified experience across platforms and device sizes. The flexibility of the material creates new affordances that supercede those in the physical world, without breaking the rules of physics.
The latest report has shown that there are almost 400 million active users of the mobile version of Chrome browser, and the number is increasing in constant. The chrome browser in your iOS or Android device might have been already updated by now, or in case the auto-update option is off, you can check it manually by going to your app store, update it and enjoy the latest material design, as well as all the other features.
