Animating page transitions (HTML)

Use page transition animations to display the first page of a newly launched app, or to transition between pages within an app. The new page slides into place from an offset as it fades in. The existing content fades out as the new content fades in. The new page is split into regions, and each region moves onto the screen separately, with staggered timings. You specify how the incoming page is split into regions.

This set of animations consists of the following APIs:

    • The recommended direction is the opposite of the reading order.
