Although not everything can be in materialized, but at least, we could as close as we can by auto change the navigation and status bar color to match with the app. Not just that, we could also able to change the color of Google Keyboard to match with our personality. If the Google Keyboard standard theme are Material Light, Materials Dark, Holo Light and Holo Dark, now we can use any color we wish, so our smartphone becomes more materialized.
