Looks like a pretty big organisation wide roll out of updates with Calendar, Maps and Flights I've seen so far.
Massive improvements throughout - the calendar definitely needed it!
Still waiting for that Gmail overhaul. Hope it arrives soon.
I want to see it adopt a lot of the Inbox interactions on the mobile app, but keep more of the Gmail interactions on the web app.
I love the Map UI for flights — great way to plan a trip when you aren't married to a specific location, as it allows you to compare costs across geographies.

Gross, opinionated, heavy and harsh.
The overall design is screaming over the content, controls and so on.
It's like Inbox was mating with Lego blocks and spawned this unbalanced eyesore.
Are we all seeing the same thing?
The UX flows are wonkish. The hierarchy and organization of information are all over the place.
The scale of type is inconsistent and fails to reassert the hierarchy of information, fails to create contrast amongst labels, controls and so on.
The search button plastered on that Lego block search form of odd color contrast to nav bar is a headache.
The control schemas themselves are inconsistent as all get out.
Ironically, your first sentence perfectly describes this comment.
It's like some weird attempt to go for Simon Cowell/ Gordon Ramsay Scathing Commentary that just ends up trying too hard.
Yeah, I try to not needlessly bash other people's work unless it's really terrible. Which the new Google Flights certainly isn't. It reflects badly on the basher.
Still can't toggle between basic economy and economy, making the entire search pretty much useless without going to the actual carrier website to check.
Looks and works really good, looks like Google MD implementations start to mature.
