[Update: New name official] Files Go is now just 'Files' in latest beta, updated with new Material Design [APK Download]

Google has been steadily updating its first-party apps to its "Google Material Theme" — which most of the internet continues to call Material Design 2, much to Google's apparent chagrin. The latest addition is Files Go, which has both a new look and a new name to go with it. The beta version of the app has both the stereotypical, mostly-white design, and it now just goes by the name of "Files."

Keep Notes is the latest app to get Google's new Material Design [APK Download]

Google's been on a rampage updating apps to fit its new "Google Material Theme" or "Material Design 2" or whatever you prefer to call it — I've been known to say "Monochrome Menace," myself. Keep Notes (née Google Keep) is the latest app to get the new look, and it's pretty snazzy.

Chrome recently turned 10 years old, which is quite difficult to believe as it seems like only yesterday I was fighting Internet Explorer on Windows XP. In that time, it’s become the most-used web browser, accounting for over 60 percent of web traffic.

Google Calculator v7.5 brings a new Material UI with a lot more white [APK Download]

Several Google apps—Phone, Contacts, and Photos—have been updated with new interfaces in the past month or so, and the Calculator app is the latest recipient. Unsurprisingly, the update is purely cosmetic, adding Google's new favorite shade of blue and a lot more white. In other words, you guys probably aren't going to like this.

Google Photos updated to v4.0 with refreshed Material UI [APK Download]

In my opinion, Google Photos is probably the best service the company has ever released. Like all of Google's first-party apps, it was just a matter of time until it got its own refreshed aesthetic to match Android 9 Pie. A so-called "Material Design 2" update to Google Photos has just landed together with a major version change to v4.0. So far almost all the differences are skin deep, but we've got a download if you'd like to take a look.
