Google will change small details that haven't changed for 10 years

Google will change small details that haven't changed for 10 years

With Android 15, Google will improve the status bar, which has seen almost no major design changes since 2014.

New features surrounding Android 15 are in the works. Knowing that the entire volume setting will likely have to be reworked, Robot body It tells us that the status bar should also be revamped.

The status bar is that area at the top of the screen where you can see the time, notifications, use certain system features like your network status and battery life, or even see a widget interface that alerts you to the presence of an app. Using your camera for example.

Very little change since Android 5.0 Lollipop

If you've been using Android for some time, you've probably noticed that this space has changed little. Since the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop (2014), the icons have changed very slightly and generally maintained the same appearance, based on the Material Design design language. This is despite the fact that in 2021, with the transition to Android 12, Google has evolved its design language towards Material You. Therefore, it is time for this part of the interface to benefit from development.

Here's what it could look like and how it differs from Android 14 currently.

There will be two notable software changes: the battery level can finally be displayed within the dedicated icon, thus saving a little space. Note that some manufacturers already offer this option of course.

Another development is that the network and Wi-Fi signal bars will return to being divided into four levels. This should improve readability.

One last little nuance for the road. By holding down your finger on one of the tiles on the shortcuts panel, such as Bluetooth, you should get slight haptic feedback.

Note that these changes were seen in the Developer Preview 2 of Android 15. So it is not yet certain that Google will keep them in the stable version.
