Instead of searching for icons in Material icons, and then trying to figure out what the required icon component name would look like, now you can directly search for any icon among 1,000+ official Material icons converted to svg icon components.
The search feature is super easy. After you select an icon a pop up opens with the import of such icon.
You can also choose between icon styles (Filled, Outlined, Rounded, Two tone, and Sharp) in the left side bar.
As announced in Material-UI tweet that their synonyms list is not perfect yet. And they will refine it based on the search usage.
