OEMs are likely to conclude the Android 12 update deployment as Google showcased the new Android 13 operating system, which will go official later this year. Consumers are now waiting for the Android 13 upgrade, while Google is now updating the Play Store with more Android 12 Material You buttons.
With the Android 12 upgrade, Google delivered just a handful of tweaks inspired by the Material You design suite. However, users are now getting more new Material You tweaks such as buttons with new the Google Play Store update.
As you can see in the screenshot below (via 9to5Google), the slightly rectangular buttons of the Google Play Store are now revamped and adapted into pill-shaped buttons. If you access an app’s listing, Google Play Store will show you the new pill-shaped elements entitled “Install,” “Uninstall” “Cancel” and “Update”.
Aside from the revamped buttons, the remaining ones don’t adopt Dynamic Color theming and continue using the default Green color. It’s worth mentioning that last October’s Google Play Store update included UI tweaks for the homescreen only, consisting of a new search field, bottom bar, and Dynamic Color for those two key elements.
Google launched the Android 12 operating system back in October 2021. This version is packed with radical design changes (in the history of Android) and newly added features. Also, the company introduced the new Material You design language along with the 12th version of Android.
Beta program is already live, while Google is likely to seed the Public version of the Android 13 operating system sometime in October this year. The 13th version is likely not to introduce major changes in the user interface as Google’s further enhancing the changes and features arrived with Android 12.
One UI 5
Samsung One UI 5 will be based on the Android 13 OS. The Galaxy S22 series devices are expected to be eligible for Beta testing this month, while Stable rollout will happen later this year. Recently, a handful of screenshots revealed design changes and new features of the One UI 5.0, which you can see here.
