Android Auto tests two new UIs for Google Assistant, launcher customization and weather are live (APK Teardown)

Changes to the UI of Android Auto are few and far between, but that doesn't mean there aren't a few things in testing from time to time. There are (at least) two interfaces in the works right now, one of which appears to be rolling out to some people, and we have screenshots of both. Also, for those waiting for the ability to customize the apps in your launcher or get the temperature in your status bar, both appear to be live for everybody now.

(Update: Live, APK) Google is testing reorganized navigation tabs in the Play Games app

The design of Google's Play apps is like a neverending story, although not a very interesting one. Play Games has seen less flux than the Play Store, at least, but Google still tweaks its interface more often that is probably necessary. The latest change to be tested moves some of the core navigation around.

Facebook app UI turns lurid for some, flashes large f button on bottom nav bar

It hasn’t been long since the Facebook app for Android shed its dark blue top bar in favor of an interface that looked whiter than Facebook’s ethos. Some of that vibrancy may soon make a comeback as the social media giant is testing a redesigned options tab along with a new bottom navigation bar, where the Facebook logo sits right in the center.

Google Messages gets new share and download buttons in image viewer [APK Download]

Google's design language is ever-evolving, and thus its apps are always changing, too. The same is true for Messages, which has only recently received automatic dark mode support on Android 10 and the ability to set chat reminders. The most recent tweak is far more minor, though. Messages version 5.2 sports a redesigned image viewer that moves the share and save buttons from the top to the bottom, making them more accessible.

Back at F8 2019, Facebook promised a redesign for its mobile apps and website. The Android app started receiving the new interface almost immediately, but the change was only promised on the web in "the next few months."

The new Yahoo Mail app is made for one-handed grocery shopping

Yahoo Mail isn't quite as ubiquitous as it once was, but plenty of people use both the app and email service for their long-form communication needs in 2019. Today Yahoo is pushing out an entirely new version of the app, with modern focus on one-handed use with taller phones, faster access to attached files, and tools to help you save cash — plus a strange (but potentially useful) grocery coupon clipping tool that has nothing to do with email.

Android Auto, One, and TV pick up new logos as part of recent rebranding

Earlier this month, Google revealed its updated design language for the Android logo ahead of the Android 10 release. In addition to elevating the bugdroid (or at least its head) to the logo itself, new typography for the "android" text was also shown off. As part of today's big push to update the various Android sites, the logos for Android TV, Android Auto, and Android One have all been updated to match those previous changes.

Google Shopping has a new desktop site with checkout for 'Buy with Google' items

Earlier this year, Google confirmed that it would merge Shopping (a way to search for products from many stores in one place) and Express (a combined storefront for multiple retailers) to make the new Google Shopping.
