To celebrate #materialdesign 's first year in existence, we set out to find some of the best-in-class examples of the system being adopted and applied out in the world. We created a showcase to highlight some of these beautifully materialized apps on Google Play (https://goo.gl/YUZs9e), and of those 18, we chose 6 for their smart application of specific elements of material design. Read more about the 6 Material Design Award winners over on google.com/design. http://goo.gl/Qx20Sz #io15

Feeling up to the challenge? Chime in .. #io15 codelabs. ... #io15ExtendedNairobi
 
We've made the Google I/O 2015 codelabs app publicly available for all #io15 participants in person, and attendees worldwide.

Codelabs provide a hands-on, guided tutorial experience illustrating how to build modern mobile and web applications using the latest Google APIs, tools and developer technologies. If you're here at Moscone, we're excited for you to try this out after the keynote on level 2.
Google Codelabs for developers staying on the cutting edge.

#materialDesign  made easier!
 
Android Design Support Library: bringing material design to life
The Design library brings a number of important material design components to all Android 2.1 or higher devices (http://goo.gl/KZBhH2). You’ll find a navigation drawer view, a floating label TextInputLayout, a floating action button, snackbar, tabs, and a motion and scroll framework to tie them together.

You’ll be able to build your navigation drawer’s items using a menu resource file and connect a TabLayout with a ViewPager with just a single call to setupWithViewPager().

AppBarLayout lets you set scroll flags to control how views such as your Toolbar scroll on and off the screen or extend it farther with CollapsingToolbarLayout to resize title text size, pin views as the app bar collapses, and add parallax effects - again just a few lines of XML.

With components that match the material design spec out of the box and the tools you need to provide rich behavior between views via the new CoordinatorLayout, the Design library gives you the building blocks needed to build a modern, great looking Android app without building everything from scratch.

Voice Interaction API. #GoogleDev100  
 
100 days of Google Dev, Episode 7/100:

At Google I/O, we announced a new Voice Interaction API for Android that allows back-and-forth voice dialogue between users and your app. To see this in action, take the example of TuneIn. TuneIn integrated with one of Google’s system voice actions to allow users to say “Ok Google, listen to music on TuneIn.” Since that request is a little vague, TuneIn used the Voice Interaction API to ask a clarifying question: “Which genre would you like to listen to?” The user can then respond with “Classical” or any other genre from TuneIn’s list, after which TuneIn will start playing.

The API is a part of the Android M Developer Preview, although the voice interactions that you create won’t be available to users until Android M is publicly launched. To learn more about the Voice Interaction API, check out the tutorial video below or our codelab at g.co/dev/codelab-voice-interaction.

And if you’re itching for more voice actions, let us know your ideas to create a custom voice action that’s unique to your app via our interest form: g.co/VoiceActionsInterest.
