Google has completely redesigned the Play Store from ground up and has made it more easier to search for Apps and navigate the Store. The overall design is much cleaner now compared to the previous version. The new design was previously available only to select users and now with the official release, it will serve two billion people using the Play Store worldwide.
Google spoke about the design change in their blog post and said that the Play Store will now offer a premium experience with the new UI and will improve the App discovery and accessibility for their diverse set of users. They have introduced a new navigation bar at the bottom of the Play Store on mobile devices and a new left navigation on tablets and Chrome OS to make browsing faster and easier.
The blog post further said that there are now two distinct destinations for games and apps, which helps the company better serve users the right kind of content. When the user finds the right app or game, the updated store listing page layout surfaces richer app information at the top of each page as well as a more prominent call-to-action button. This makes it easier for users to see the important details and make a decision to install the app.
The entire icon system is also new on the Play Store and it really stands out over the user interface. The update should now be available to Android and Chrome OS users and if you still haven’t receievd it, it will be out in the coming days.
