If you’ve been using Chrome for desktop for a long time, you will see that the browser looks the same, without any significant update to its material design, for a long time.
However, the latest update preview on the code’s browser shows Google’s attempts to match the desktop browser’s material design with the material design applied in the mobile version of the browser. Though the upgrade in the material design may still not be a significant upgrade, it seems that Google is working on the full material design change in its desktop version browser.
