Google dropped the Android 12 on us showcasing what we can expect to see with the upcoming Android OS. Furthermore, Android 12 is shaping up to be one of the biggest updates to the platform in recent years thanks to the Material You design that it showed off at the I/O event.
Google rolled out the Android 12 Beta 1 update right after the announcement for the Pixels along with a few other OEMs who’re participating in the beta program such as Xiaomi, OnePlus, Vivo, and Oppo.
Naturally, many users rushed to download the beta 1 update on eligible devices thinking that they’ll get to check out the all-new Material You design.
But to their disappointment, the new Material You elements are only visible in some areas of the UI.
How to enable Material You in Android 12?
There’s no ‘toggle switch that you can tap in the Android 12 Beta 1 update to enable the Material You design.
Besides, a new design is only partly live in the first Android 12 beta update. Changes such as the new notification shade, lock screen clock layout, and more are here.
But that’s about all you will get with the first beta update. So when will Google actually release its Material You design in Android 12?
Well, in its official announcement, the company has confirmed that “Material You comes first to Google Pixel this fall.”
