Facebook has announced an update to its Messenger app for Android, bringing a Material Design refresh to its interface. The design is an evolution of the previous look, keeping tabs for conversations, groups, people, and settings at the top, while sprucing up the bottom of the app.

Messenger development lead David Marcus offered a bit more insight on the redesign in a post on Facebook:

If you’re using Messenger on Android, you’ve been wanting a brand new material design for a bit. Any major redesign of an essential app used by hundreds of millions of people around the world is painstakenly hard, and that’s why we took every precaution to ensure you’d truly enjoy this evolution.

The new design for Facebook Messenger will start rolling out soon. In the meantime, you can grab the app from the Google Play Store.
