    Navigation transitions use motion to guide users between two screens in your app. They help users orient themselves by expressing your app’s hierarchy, using movement to indicate how elements are related to one another.

    For example, when an element expands to fill the entire screen, the act of expansion expresses that the new screen is a child element. The screen from which it expanded is its parent element.

    Hierarchical transitions move users one level upwards or downwards through an app’s hierarchy, while peer transitions move users between siblings (screens of equal hierarchy).

    Hierarchical transitions move users one level upwards or downwards through an app’s hierarchy, while peer transitions move users between siblings (screens of equal hierarchy).


    Hierarchical transitions

    Hierarchical transitions reflect when users move one level up, or down, in an app. Screens at adjacent levels to one another have a parent and child relationship with one another, in which the parent is placed at a higher level of hierarchy than its child.

    Parent-child transitions

    From a parent screen, an embedded child element lifts up on touch and expands in place, using Standard easing. The motion both draws focus to the child screen (which is the destination of the interaction), while reinforcing the relationship between parent and child screens.

    Peer transitions

    Peer transitions occur between screens at the same level of hierarchy.

    Sibling transitions occur between peers that share a parent, while top-level peer transitions are only used for switching between primary destinations.

    Screens that share the same parent (such as photos in an album, sections of a profile, or steps in a flow) move in unison to reinforce their relationship to one another. The peer screen slides in from the one side, while its sibling moves off screen in the opposite direction.

    Tabs indicate they are related by sitting at the same elevation and moving together.

    At the top level of an app, destinations are often grouped into major tasks (and the tasks may not relate to one another). These screens transition in place by changing values such as opacity and scale.
