chrome material 640x414Google’s Android L update is set to be a pretty big one for Google, at least as far as aethetics are concerned. In some ways it is similar to how Apple redesigned iOS from iOS 6 to iOS 7. Material Design is the new design language that Google is going for and we can expect to see it applied across the board.

That being said if you can’t wait for the update to eventually make its way to you, you might be interested to learn that Google has recently updated its Chrome Beta app for Android, giving it a Material Design makeover and giving us a taste of the design before it takes over the entire operating system.

As you can see, the overall design of the app looks “flatter” and is indeed in line with Google’s plans. The Chrome Beta will allow users to sign in with their Google accounts, which will then help to sync your bookmarks and browser history with your desktop, so if you enjoy the continuity then you will want to take advantage of that.

In any case the app is available for download via Google Play so if you want to take it for a spin, head on over to the Google Play Store for the download. However we should point out that the app is in beta, so there could be some bugs that Google has yet to address.
