Over the past couple of years, those of us who pay close attention to mobile technology have watched a whole new design paradigm emerge before our all-too-wet eyes.

And you to know I must be talking about something important here because I’m using big words like “paradigm” and, um, “eyeballs.”

The topic in question is a basic one for Android – especially for those using a Google’s Pixel phonewhere the core Android software exists in its purest form.

It’s a little thing called “Material You,” and having lived with the Pixel for a whole year Android 12 and now the beginning Android 13I’m here to tell you that it’s one of the most transformative and underappreciated advances we’ve seen in modern technology—even if it seems like hardly anyone is giving it credit.

Material You, if you’re not familiar, is a new design standard that Google introduced in Android 12 in 2021 and then fleshed out in this year’s Android 13 update. It’s easy to dismiss this as just another change to Android’s on-screen appearance — some added shadows here, some extra rounded elements there, and other such arbitrary adjustments.

However, if you do, you risk missing out on not only one of the smartest and most significant Android improvements of all time, but also one of the coolest and most significant design innovations. any form of technology in recent times.
