Material Design Android update

Material Design is the most important concept behind Android Lollipop. It is pretty obvious that Lollipop OS is what it is today because of Material Design. Today, Google has announced an update that is made by the material design team to the existing spec. The update comes with seven new features added to the existing design and also improvements, says Google.

A good amount of significance in this update is given to the FAB (Floating Action Button), giving it a separate section of its own.
