"Available" means that the components or feature is published and available for use, but may still be missing some behaviors or polish.

The goal of Angular Material

Our goal is to build a set of high-quality UI components built with Angular and TypeScript, following the Material Design spec. These components will serve as an example of how to write Angular code following best practices.

What do we mean by "high-quality"?

  • Internationalized and accessible so that all users can use them.
  • Straightforward APIs that don't confuse developers.
  • Behave as expected across a wide variety of use-cases without bugs.
  • Behavior is well-tested with both unit and integration tests.
  • Customizable within the bounds of the Material Design specification.
  • Performance cost is minimized.
  • Code is clean and well-documented to serve as an example for Angular devs.

Browser and screen reader support

Angular Material supports the most recent two versions of all major browsers: Chrome (including Android), Firefox, Safari (including iOS), and IE11 / Edge

We also aim for great user experience with the following screen readers:

  • NVDA and JAWS with IE / FF / Chrome (on Windows).
  • VoiceOver with Safari on iOS and Safari / Chrome on OSX.
  • TalkBack with Chrome on Android.
