Muzei 2.3: Now in Open Beta
If you've been interested in what has been going on with Muzei over the last ~year, wait no longer - Muzei 2.3 (beta 6) is now in open beta! I've been working quite a bit on Muzei both to improve compatibility with Doze (a work in progress), add some long standing feature requests, and start to take advantage of many Wear 2.0 features.

This is a beta release, so please submit feedback early and often, talk about any bugs you are experiencing, and what you'd like to see in the future. Reliability wise, I've found it to be leaps and bounds better than the current production version, if that's something you are concerned about.

If you're using an Android Wear 2.0 device running the latest developer preview, you'll be able to install Muzei directly from the Play Store on your watch.

New features include:
- Runtime permissions
- Improved reliability on Android 6.0+ devices (consider turning off background optimizations on your art source if you continue to have loading issues)
- Gallery extension supports adding entire folders on Android 5.0+ devices
- 'Next Artwork' Quick Settings Tile on Android 7.0+ devices
- Direct Boot support (known issue: does not take into account your blur/dimming preferences)
- 'Artwork Info' app shortcut on Android 7.1+ devices
- Muzei artwork now available as a complication for other Wear 2.0 watch faces to use
- New Muzei DocumentsProvider for selecting past artwork

Get the beta:
1. Opt in: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/net.nurik.roman.muzei
2. Install from Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.nurik.roman.muzei
3. File bugs: https://github.com/romannurik/muzei/issues

The video of my Droidcon NYC talk is now up. In it I go through a number of examples of how and why to build meaningful motion into your apps.

Unfortunately the slides in the video are static so i'd recommend checking out the slide deck here: j.mp/animatable-slides (which also has notes in the ℹ️ field).

Muzei 2.3 Beta

This is a beta release, so expect things to be perhaps a little more rough than a 'final' release would be, but I've found it to be leaps and bounds better than the current production version, FWIW.

Muzei is a live wallpaper that gently refreshes your home screen each day with famous works of art. It also recedes into the background, blurring and dimming artwork to keep your icons and widgets in the spotlight. Simply double touch the wallpaper or open the Muzei app to enjoy and explore the artwork in its full glory.Alternatively, you can choose your favorite photos from your own gallery or other apps to use on your home screen.

+Paul Danyliuk​, agreed. Fabulous is a perfect example of a nice UI but poor/awful UX.

+Eduardo Pratti​ I think if you have a great reason to use a colored background then by all means do so; most important IMO is the glyph itself along with size and shape. One benefit of using a light background is if your product icon has a colored background, the large circle shortcut icon will contrast nicely with the smaller circle product icon when dragging the shortcut to your home screen.

Here's a tiny little app to help you to change animation durations from quick settings.

When i'm writing animations, I tend to toggle these settings a lot so found it helpful to turn these into a quick settings tile. Two tiles are actually offered in this app:

– A toggle, between 1x/5x
– A selector which launches a dialog with all of the scales.

I published a 30 minutes read on the redesign of Chrome desktop core UI -> https://goo.gl/8dmJSs

Talking process, technical details, public and internal reaction as well as lesson learned.

Hopefully a good closing commentary on a two years long project, also marking the end of my 5 years long involvement in the design of the Chrome browser.
