This color palette comprises primary and accent colors that can be used for illustration or to develop your brand colors. They’ve been designed to work harmoniously with each other.

The color palette starts with primary colors and fills in the spectrum to create a complete and usable palette for Android, Web, and iOS. Google suggests using the 500 colors as the primary colors in your app and the other colors as accents colors.

UI color application Expand and collapse content An arrow that points down when collapsed and points up when expanded.

Choose your palette

Limit your selection of colors by choosing three color hues from the primary palette and one accent color from the secondary palette. The accent color may or may not need fallback options.

Example of a primary color palette
Example of a secondary palette

Use alpha values for grey text, icons, and dividers

To convey a hierarchy of information, you can use different shades for text. The standard alpha value for text on a white background is 87% (#000000). Secondary text, which is lower in the visual hierarchy, should have an alpha value of 54% (#000000). Text hints for users, like those in text fields and labels, have an even lower visual prominence and should have an alpha value of 26% (#000000).

Other elements, such as icons and dividers, also benefit from having an alpha value of black instead of a solid color, to make sure that they work on backgrounds of any color.

Toolbars and status bars

Toolbars and larger color blocks should use the primary 500 color, which should be the main color of your app. The status bar should be the darker 700 tint of your primary color.

Bold use of color in large fields in the UI is encouraged. Different elements in the UI can take on different parts of your color theme.

Accent color

Use the accent color for your primary action button and components like switches or sliders.

Do.

Only use the accent color for body text to accent a web link.

Don't.

Don’t use the accent color for body text color.

Do.
Don't.

Don’t use the accent color for app bars or larger areas of color. Avoid using the same color for the floating action button and the background.

Fallback accent colors

If your accent color is too light or dark for the background color, the general fallback rule is to choose a darker or lighter tint of the accent color. If your accent color doesn’t work at all, use the primary 500 color on white backgrounds. If the background color is the primary 500 color use white 100% or black 54%.

Don't.

Themes Expand and collapse content An arrow that points down when collapsed and points up when expanded.

Themes let you apply a consistent tone to an app. The theme specifies the darkness of the surfaces, level of shadow, and appropriate opacity of ink elements.

To promote greater consistency between apps, two themes are available: Light and Dark.
