Google expands Material Design suite with new tools for sharing and collaborating on projects
Google has launched a suite of new resources for easily creating, sharing, and editing Material Design projects. All the updated tools and guidelines can be found on the freshly-launched Material.io website, where Google showcases the flexibility and prowess of its cohesive design language in a series of expertly animated and lively demos.
One of the new Material tools introduced by Google is called Gallery, and it allows for easily sharing work-in-progress projects within design teams. Mockups and entire designs can be shared with a simple web link, while viewers can comment on specific parts of the projects. Creators can easily update their works via the version control section, which allows for uploading updated versions of previously submitted designs.
The Remixer tool allows developers and designers to tweak different UI aspects on the fly, such as changing animations and color palettes, thus making simultaneously prototyping apps for multiple platforms much easier.
Speaking of prototyping, Stage is a new app that allows developers to test their apps at much earlier stages of the development process.
All the new tools are accessible by signing up on the new Material.io website.
