Google use Material Design for unification and convergence

One of the things I like about Google is they continue to experiment and improve performance of their products. As Google strengthens their platform approach, unification and convergence are the name of the game. To that end they have been developing a standard approach to interface language. Called Material Design, which is inspired by the look of paper and ink. The interface is flat, colourful and reactive to a user’s input, intended to make the user experience seamless and simple.

Google have developed this to enable a single underlying system that allows for a unified experience across platforms and device sizes, from mobile, touch, voice, mouse, and keyboard. The first examples of this unified interface are set to arrive with the next version of Android, 5L (name to be confirmed).
