After nearly a year in development, Google’s Material You redesign of ChromeOS is finally taking shape, bringing dynamic colors, a quick settings revamp, and more.

We first spotted Google’s intentions to create a Material You redesign of ChromeOS back in January.

Since then, Google has steadily worked on the massive visual overhaul for Chromebooks, with the beginnings of Material You dynamic colors appearing in June.

Given the sheer size of ChromeOS, it should be no surprise to learn that this Material You redesign is not one singular project, but multiple smaller ones happening in concert within Google.

Over the last few weeks, ChromeOS enthusiasts like Kent Duke, C2 Productions, and Futur3Sn0w (via Chrome Unboxed) have shown that Google has made significant progress toward a full Material You redesign.

First and foremost, the feature many will be most excited for is the arrival of Material You dynamic colors — the ability to have your Chromebook re-hued to match your current wallpaper, as first seen in Android 12.

Much of the framework for ChromeOS dynamic colors now seems to be in place, with the app shelf, quick settings, and Files app all now matching a particular color theme.

For starters, ChromeOS notifications now live in a separate area, to the left of the calendar, instead of being above quick settings.

It’s clear there’s still a long way to go — strikingly, the actual Chrome browser does not yet use the dynamic color theme from ChromeOS — but it’s clear Google has a vision for where it’s taking ChromeOS next and is executing on it rapidly.

At the rate things are going, I think it’s likely we’ll see Google complete this Material You overhaul of ChromeOS and launch it sometime in 2023, but only time will tell.
