After updating the default wallpaper, the Chrome OS team is updating the boot animation for Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. With this change, they are giving it a Material Design makeover too.
Watch the boot animation video here:
The video is in WebM format, and you will need a supported player or browser (Chrome) to watch the video. If you want to see the frame by frame images, (for Chromium OS) head over to this commit log.
Now the question is, how “Material” is this boot animation, and if you like it. I do not see anything wrong with it, but I am yet to see anything “Material Design” specific yet. I might have to wait until it actually shows up in an upcoming Canary channel update!
