Pixel Sounds app gets a taste of Material You in the latest update

With the Pixel 6 launch event just a day away, Google is ramping up the rollout of Material You makeovers for its first-party apps. The latest to get a fresh coat of paint with Material You elements is the Pixel Sounds app — a collection of ringtones, notifications, and alarms for the Google Pixel. The app comes pre-installed on Pixel phones.

As first spotted by 9to5Google, Google is rolling out a new update to the Sounds app on Pixel phones, and it includes a Material You makeover. Besides the fresh UI, the update also adds a new “Material Adventures” collection.

You can check out the new Material You look at the Sounds app in the gallery below.


The redesign replaces the old grid view with a standard list that uses rounded corners. The current selection is highlighted using Dynamic Color, while viewing a collection displays a gradient effect at the top.

In addition, the update also adds a new sound collection called “Material Adventures” across all three categories. Material Adventures brings the following new delightful sounds across alarm sound, ringtone, and notification:
