Looking for a new set of icons? In an effort to spread the Material Design look, Google on Tuesday released a set of cool new icons that anyone can download for free. Need icons for your app, website, or just curious to see what they look like? You can head on over to Github and download the full package. There are 750 in total, and they’re protected under a CC-BY-SA Creative Commons license, which means you can use them for whatever you want.

“The system icons contain icons commonly used across different apps, such as icons used for media playback, communication, content editing, connectivity, and so on,” said user addyosmani of the release. “They’re equally useful when building for the web, Android or iOS.”

If you don’t feel like committing to a full download, you can check out a live preview of the Material icons here. Neat! Everything is broken down into categories, including communication, device hardware, editor and more. If you have an app on the way, or you simply need some inspiration for a website design, you can grab Google’s Material Design Icons at the source link below.
