Magisk, the popular root solution, is testing an updated interface for its Magisk Manager app's latest Canary release. It's a pretty drastic redesign, and developer John Wu is clear that this isn't the final look, but we can expect a focus on  "functionality over aesthetics."

Google Assistant's new Material visual responses start rolling out to some users

Back at I/O 2018, Google announced two changes to the design and experience of Assistant on your phone.
