Floating action button (FAB)

Floating action buttons place the most important actions on the screen a tap away.

Must include:

  • Icon with no label
  • Background color
Android Auto FAB example

Template support

FABs are supported by the Grid template and the List template.


Each Grid or List template is limited to two FABs, which appears in the lower right corner.

Use a FAB for the most important action on the screen. Be sure that the icon is easy to understand, since there is no text label. In the prior example, the plus sign conveys the idea of adding another destination.
