Material Icons and Material Design Icons

Material Icons

Material Icons is the official repository for Material Design icons and it’s owned by Google. There are more or less 1500 icons divided into several categories such as Action, Alert, Av, Communication, Content, etc. All icons are available in 4 themes — Filled, Outlined, Rounded, Two-tone, Sharp.

Material Design Icons

Material Design Icons aims to cover the gaps Google left with their set and allow a lot more community integration. Many icons are made by the site’s owners and some are submitted by users. They are supposed to comply with Material Design icon’s guidelines, but they’re not related to Google in any way. There are nearly 6000 icons in filled and outlined styles.

Differences and Relations

  1. Firstly, icons differ from each other by their names.
  2. Sometimes size and small details make the difference.
  3. Most icons are the same or created by the same guidelines.
