Google Home 3.1 bring new light controls, tablet UI changes

The company redesigned Google Home for large-screen devices like tablets. Now they release Google Home 3.1 which brings new light controls and some modifications to the tablet UI. With this update, the user will see the Favorite, Devices, Automation, Activity, and Settings all options available in a new container. This new container has rounded corners.

The new container is different than the previous than the navigation rail and top app bar. When the user switches from dark to normal the background appears in light blue. With Google Home 3.1 update, the devices tab adopts a secondary navigation element that lists each room.

For choosing it scroll the user to that grouping along with each tile narrower as a result. The nav rail remains shown in portrait orientation but the bar won’t. Currently, the bar won’t support fully Favorite tab but in an upcoming update, it will.
