Google Drive got the Material Theme makeover for web a while back. Now it's finally making its way over to Android and iOS.

Google is currently refreshing their apps with a cleaner UI called Material Theme. Material Theme is based on Material Design and is often referred to as Material Design 2.0.

iOS users should already have the redesign as it rolled out on March 12 and Android user should be getting it from March 18. Let's take a look at the new Google Drive.
