One of the most common UI components in first-party Google apps is the account switcher, and it fetches more Material You elements.
As noted in Messages (if Google Photos video integration is enabled), tapping on your profile avatar reveals that the sheet has more rounded corners. It visually seems more in line with Material You.
Meanwhile, the “Manage your Google Account” button is no longer housed in a pill-shaped container. YouTube Music recently made this change, and the main YouTube app is expected to follow as well.
There are no other changes to the process of selecting other connected or disconnected accounts, and app-specific options such as privacy, settings, and help/feedback appear at the bottom.
Given the ubiquity and consistency of this account picker, we expect all Google apps to get this hardware you design over time.
Messages is the first app to get it. Google told us in June that the feature for sharing videos, and possibly images, is still rolling out. It was first announced in March and has been long overdue.
