Google's Roboto font goes open source
The Roboto font has come to define the look of Google’s Android and Chrome OS platforms since its introduction with Android 4.0 back in 2011. It has been incorporated into a range of Google products and services over the years and is also now a promoted part of the Material Design language. The tech giant is now opening up the font for anyone to make their own, as Roboto has gone open-source.
Google had already made its customized font available for download a long time ago, but by going open-source, developers can now modify the font as they desire. The font is now up on GitHub, complete with a revamped font production toolchain used to design the font, which is also based on open source software. In addition, Google has also updated the font to include all Latin, Cyrillic and Greek Characters.
