Well this is an interesting change for Google. The company is one-by-one rolling out updates to its in-house Android apps that include splash screens. These screens (screenshots via a user on Reddit) are displayed during the 2-3 seconds between tapping an apps’ icon and the app actually loading.

It’s an interesting change particularly because Google was in the past very adamant about developers not using splash screens, but rather displaying a non-functional, or blank, UI to make it obvious that the app was open and loading.
