Material 3 is Google’s latest and newest design system. However, using or adopting Material 3 in Android apps might be a bit challenging.
In this talk, we will see how we can use the Material 3 design system with the Material components in Android apps. Firstly, we will talk about the color system and typography in Material 3 and discuss the differences with Material 2. Then, we will see how to use Material 3 components both in the Android View system and Jetpack Compose. Moreover, we will touch upon how to migrate to Material 3 from Material 2 and, share the experiences for Material 3 migration of our banking apps. Finally, we will argue about the pros & cons of using Material 3.
