Google prepping Weather redesign forward of Android 12

Google reportedly has a slight redesign within the works for its ‘Weather’ applet contained in the Google Search app on Android.

9to5Google uncovered the up to date design in a teardown of the Google Search app’s newest beta, model 12.19. For these unfamiliar with app teardowns, they contain decompiling an APK file and scouring the code for modifications. Often, teardowns unveil code and unfinished options that trace at upcoming updates. At the identical time, it’s necessary to take teardown findings with a grain of salt — issues can all the time change, and typically new options don’t get launched.

That mentioned, the updates to the Weather interface come forward of some of the vital design overhauls to Android in years. Android 12 can be set to usher in ‘Material You,’ a brand new tackle design that may add personalization capabilities to Android. With that in thoughts, I’d say it’s a secure guess we’ll see this replace launch sooner or later.

That mentioned, there’s not a lot that’s really totally different with Weather, partially as a result of it seems to be a work-in-progress. The most vital modifications are rounded corners on the search bar and the brand new Google Account switcher accessible by tapping the profile image on the proper facet of the search bar.

There’s additionally a brand new Material Theme tab bar, new fonts and a few textual content sports activities extra noticeable shadows, making it barely simpler to learn.

So far, the modifications are minimal, however this can be the start of a bigger general adjustment to the Weather app. It’s price noting it hasn’t obtained a major design replace in years, with most of it sporting the unique 2014 Material Design.
