After adding Material Design on its Android 5.0 Lollipop for Smartphones and Tablets, Google is looking to bring the Material Design UI to Desktops by updating Chrome Browser (for PC, Mac and linux) and the Chromium OS too in a new project codenamed "Athena".
The "Athena" project is a project bringing a new kind of user experience to Chrome OS. Bringing radical changes in both the user interface and the fundamentals of the Chrome OS user experience. Material Design elements is already available for web developers who are lokking to add a Google-ish touch to their websites or webApps.
These leaked screenshots from an alpha build of Chrome Os shows the New UI that will be released sometime this year, we don't know the exact version when these changes will start rolling-out. It's highly expected that we might see those changes when Google Chrome version 50 get released, currently it's on version 42.
It's been a while since Google last decided to dust off the desktop web version of its Play Store repository, but from the looks of it, a new refreshment of the interface is imminent. Several sources claim that Google is currently testing a new layout for the Play Store.
Currently, as you most likely know, when you open the page of a given app, the Play Store suggests some similar ones all the way at the bottom of the page, which is not quite intuitive and user-friendly. Check the leaked Screenshot below.
Google seems to be aware of this according to a leaked screenshot of a test layout for the Play Store, Mountain View might be poised to bring the similar app suggestions to the right side of the screen, in a dedicated sidebar. Other apps from the same developer are also being shown.
