Google Calculator has welcomed its own share of the famous Material Theme. As a matter of fact I am beginning to loose count of the number of apps that have now been transformed from their initial designs. Google Calculator—the app for making sure you get your figures right is now wearing a new look.

Just when you begin to think that it is not possible to have all Google apps overhauled with Material design, the least expected of them all gets a makeover. Well, not much change was made to the app, except for some minor touches here and there. The Calculator now spots a Product Sans font, and of course, it is white.

According to our friends at XDA Developers, the update is already available and you can pretty much do that by heading that way to have a feel of the new look. I don’t really think there is much to be excited about, but it feels good to know that Google Calendar was thought of and considered worthy of an overhaul.

Sincerely I would have loved things to remain the way they were before this new theme, and some users share similar sentiments too. You can go to the Play Store to see things for yourself—some if not most of those users who sent a feedback would have preferred that the old color was not tampered with.

Though, it took a while, Google gave use the option of a material design on YouTube Web sometime last year. The aim is to make the web version more synonymous with what is obtainable on the mobile version. Making it fit in a simpler and more attractive look will make it easier to highlight content on the video-streaming website.

The new material design offers infinite scrolling, end-to-end user profile banner, and a hero video on your profile. Under the user icon, you can easily enable the Dark Mode feature.

Dark Mode as a feature is being embraced by many app developers. In the recent past, Twitter and YouTube had both upgraded their apps, and users were excited.

Dark Theme is preferred by many users because of its many benefits. For example, viewing YouTube in a room with dim light does not leave any strain on your eye. It is very unlike the usual way of watching YouTube, especially in an apartment where there is no light or the light is dim.

A couple of weeks back, Android Messages also welcomed the new Material Theme, which is stark white in color, and has lighter secondary colors conversation bubbles while the avatar icons have now been changed to make them bolder.

As against the black backdrop, text, text, buttons, and icons now appear in white color. The Smart Reply chips now uses black text on white bubbles, but that could just be temporary. You can enable the dark mode by going to settings to switch a toggle.
