Android has always been an example of diversity, when we could come across all sorts of graphic extensions and different design environments across the manufacturer. At the same time, there was a neutral, undisturbed design of the so-called pure Android, which had long been coined by Google. But that changed last year with the arrival of the new graphic language Material You, which changed Android beyond recognition.
However, Material You practically only uses Google, so there has been an even greater deviation between the design of its system and the superstructures of the manufacturers. The reason for this was the relatively complicated process of its implementation into the OEM system. Nevertheless, Google tried to change everything in the spring, and according to the findings of the website Android Police , it even began to enforce Material You with manufacturers as a condition for licensing its GMS (Google Mobile Services).
The complicated implementation process was that the Material You look was designed to use dynamic themes with different color palettes. These are mixed so that the overall result looks good, has the right contrast and everything was nice to read. However, as usual, some manufacturers did not understand this and tried to modify the look differently than was originally intended to differentiate their phones at least.
As part of internal control, Google began restricting access to Material You only to some manufacturers where he has verified that they have implemented the design as intended. But that again limited the expansion of the new look.
Fortunately, that is about to change with Android 13 , where Google allegedly developed an automated control system that immediately detects whether the environment is properly implemented in accordance with Material You, thus eliminating restrictions for specific manufacturers. Thanks to this, other brands will finally be able to use it, which will be able to “painlessly” include it in their own superstructure.
