A Google Design Sizzle role, prepared to attract the upcoming Android Material Design Update, gave us a first glimpse of how Google plans to update the look of its own Android apps. The video was created by Adam Grabowski and Nicolo Bianchino, designers who have worked with Google in the past, and shows some conceptual images for the future of the Google Photos, Google Maps, and Gmail apps. Ars Technica 's Ron Amadeo has done a great job breaking up the changes and putting the new look against the existing one. He notes that there are numerous placeholders in the designs, suggesting that they are far from the finale ̵
1; even though the video was released as part of the release, which in turn suggests it contains at least a strong indication of Google's intentions  The biggest differences the video shows are rounding the corners of each rectangle and removing spot colors as design elements in Google apps. Instead, the new Google Photos looks closer to Instagram: spartan and minimalist in its surface with tons of white space. Probably too much white space. Gmail also loses its signature red banner at the top and seems to be more elegant with image attachments and long email threads. The video was taken by the team at WinFuture.de before it was hidden, and you can see it below yourself.
