Google Looks Back at the Evolution of the Android Homescreen and Navigation

For Android’s 10th anniversary, we thought it’d be cool to look back and see how it’s evolved. As you can imagine, the operating system has had quite a transformation since 2008 — the year that Twilight hit theaters and Beyoncé’s Single Ladies was topping the charts.

You’ve probably noticed that over the last few weeks, there has been more Google coverage than usual. I’m a big fan of Google’s design philosophy and ever since I/O 2018, they’ve been releasing various design related tidbits that are worth highlighting.

Today, they have published a detailed look at how Android has evolved from when it had no chance of being featured here to where we are today. The Medium post has some nice GIFs showcasing the evolution of navigation on the platform.

To make Google Assistant speak these new languages, you have to change your iOS Device language by going to Settings → General → Language & Region → [Device] Language
