Account switcher is one of the most used and very common UI components among first-party Google apps. And recently, the same become more interactive these days in order to enhance user experience as it fetches up the Material You elements.
Google Account switcher gets noticed in the messages section if you put on Google photos video integration. Tapping your profile avatar shows that the sheet has more rounded corners all around. And with the addition of Material You, the looks become more appealing and inline.
Some other changes
Whereas certain other changes include the “Manage your Google Account” button that is no longer reflected in a pill-shaped container. It is to be noted, that Youtube music create this switch a few times back. Whereas the main YouTube app should also be followed.
Although, there are non-other changes that have been made to the process of selecting other logged-in accounts or signing out. In contrast, other app-centred options that include privacy, settings, and help/feedback, appear at the bottom.
Considering the universality and consistency of this account switcher. We hope to have this Material You design in all Google apps in the coming future.
Notably, Google Messages is the first app to get it. The information circulated by Google in June that the link-based sharing feature for Video and gradually pictures are still rolling out. And the feature got first announced in March.
