Dimensions Showcase

While you wait for your design review, get inspired by a series of app demos created during the Dimensions Sprint. Designed to push the boundaries of mobile experience and the Android platform, the three-day sprint asked designers from companies such as Airbnb, eBay, PocketCast, Adobe, and Local Projects to build apps using the full suite of Material Design resources. The projects also highlight unique Android features like Nearby, Inter-app Sharing, and Android Things.

Visit the Dimensions Showcase in Dome E, or the Dimensions site for highlights from all the projects—including detailed specs on which tools and components were used to build each app.

Material Components CodeLabs

Making Material just got easier. Material Components is a library of UI components and expanded documentation that let you build easily for Android, iOS, and the web using open-source code. During I/O, visit any of our workstations for a guided, hands-on tutorial designed to showcase how Material Components can make an app or website more functional and beautiful—while also saving engineering time. If you’re reading this from home, you can try codelabs online:
