Google released Material You support for its bunch of apps so that users can take a good experience in the apps as well. Now, the search giant has pushed a new beta update for its Google App that brings Material You design language.
The new beta update comes with version 14.4, you can participate in this update through Google Play Store. In addition to this, you can download the beta version from the third-party source link mentioned here, but we don’t recommend it.
According to 9to5Google, the new Material You update gives a more customized and decent look to the Google app. The Google app now uses a Material You aligned bottom bar with pill-shaped indicator buttons that match the search filters carousel design.
To be mentioned, the standard long version found in almost every other first-party app is now the shorter version, although Gmail uses something even shorter.
After Messages and the web, the Google app is the latest app to get a modern account switcher. Now tapping your profile avatar reveals a switcher that uses Material You with dynamic colors.
The inner side of the account switcher container has several options like search history, deleting the last 15 minutes, results about you, and reminders. And outside is a Google logo at the top, as well as Search, Settings, and your data in Help and Feedback at the bottom.
You can also see an amazing separation on the Setting’s long lists menu of the Google app while the options remain the same. We can say that the new beta update has given a new look to the Google app.
YouTube Music’s comments: A low-key but powerful social media tool for music fans
YouTube Music offers a feature that allows music lovers to interact with each other through comments. Users can comment on any song, video, or podcast that they are listening to and join the conversation with other users who have similar tastes. Users can also explore user-generated playlists from the community and see their top listens.
Google could improve this YouTube Music feature by adding the option to comment on albums and playlists, and by letting users follow other users and see their comments in a feed. This would make YouTube Music a unique place to connect with music and people.
The UI was redesigned a few weeks ago to make key actions more accessible. Now, users can swipe up a panel of comments from the main YouTube app with just one tap on Android and iOS devices.
YouTube Music is not just a streaming service, but also a social network for music enthusiasts. It provides a platform for users to express themselves and engage with others through music. It also helps users discover new music and expand their musical horizons. YouTube Music is a place where music and people come together.

Google Calendar for Android adds ‘ Today’ button on all screens
Google Calendar app allows users to organize their schedules as it offers various views to display events and tasks, such as day, week, or month. However, users may sometimes need to check the current date while browsing the calendar but the existing option to return to the current date’s view may disrupt the user’s navigation.
For that, Google is introducing a minor improvement to the Calendar app which is the “Today” button. It will display the current date on every screen. The date will appear between the search icon and the account switcher. It will resemble the application’s icon on Android 13+. This way, you can see the date without leaving the screen you are on.
At the moment, this change is only for phones, not tablets. Tablets will still show “Today” for the button. You need version 2023.36.1.x of Google Calendar for Android to see this change. If you don’t see it, you can restart the app.
