In a teardown of a latest Google app beta this morning, there were several strings describing new tabs for a app. Since then, we have been means to activate it and now have a initial glance during what is many expected a redesign we’ll see tomorrow of a Google app for a Pixel 2.
About APK Teardowns: In this ‘APK teardown,’ we’ve decompiled a latest chronicle of an focus that was uploaded to a Play Store. When an app (or an APK, to be specific, in a box of Android apps) is decompiled, we’re means to see several lines of formula within that spirit during probable destiny features. Keep in mind that Google might or might not ever boat these features, and a interpretation of what they are might be imperfect. With that in mind, review on.
As suggested in an update to Assistant for iOS yesterday, a credentials of a Google app is now white instead of light gray. Additionally, all Google Feed cards have perceived a dull corners treatment.
The biggest change is to a Google app’s bottom bar. As we saw several weeks ago, a app has been contrast a thicker bottom bar that combined content in further to a icons. All a icons now underline labels and there are partially redesigned ones for Home, Upcoming, and Recent. The Search add-on — that some users have had for several versions — opens a keyboard and Search field.
Meanwhile, a Assistant add-on simply launches a Assistant, while “More” houses what was formerly in a navigation drawer. This unfortunately means that a available appropriate to entrance anywhere in a app is gone. The add-on facilities a wider cover print and a comment switcher adult top.
This redesign matches a previous rumor of a “whole new design” for a “Google home page” that circulated final week. That trickle also remarkable a redesigned Pixel Launcher that we saw during I/O that facilities a Search bar during a really bottom of a screen.
