Matías Duarte, Google's head of design, has given his view on what the future holds for Android in an interview with Wired UK.
According to Duarte, a change in the way we use technology across more devices — smartphones, the Internet of Things, smartwatches — means that the traditional ideas about software design are over, and new ones need to be created.
"As we get more and more screens and more and more devices that are smart, both integrated into our homes but also on our bodies, it's creating new types of problems that are going to create a new type of opportunity," he said.
Duarte describes the iPhone, which was the first modern smartphone, as a "crystallizing moment" in the design of smartphone software. However, he says that the iPhone's success was never guaranteed.
