Do we need revolution or evolution in interfaces? The last couple of weeks brought interesting news in both directions.
During its last major event, Facebook announced it’s rebranding to Meta, but more importantly, the company renewed its vision for the future of interfaces — the Extended Reality (XR). Zuckerberg’s vision and the concept itself aren’t new, and the key question remains the same: do users want it and are they ready for it? The stakes for Facebook never have been higher as they bet on XR to fight for a new generation of users.
On the other hand, the evolution enthusiasts will appreciate the public release of Android 12, which brings “Material You” (the newest version of Google’s design system) to the masses. It takes personalization to a new degree and it’s a big step for the world’s most-used mobile operating system. It also stresses the evolutionary journey the company has made to beautiful software.
