Android 12 / Material You

The Material You design language was introduced in 2021 as part of the Android 12 update. It is an evolution of the Material Design and focuses on customization, personalization, and user expression, allowing users to create a more individualized and adaptable user interface.

The design language emphasizes dynamic color theming, which adapts to the user's wallpaper or other system elements, and supports a more fluid and playful approach to animations and interactions.

Material You also features new design elements such as shape-changing buttons, dynamic elevation, and new iconography. The goal of Material You was to create a more intuitive, immersive, and delightful user experience across Google's products and services.
