Google Play store has started receiving a new update that brings Material design visual refresh, improved app discovery, and accessibility. As per Google, this update offers a more premium store experience.
The Google Play Store has over two billion monthly active users coming to find the right app, game, and other digital content. To improve the overall store experience, we’re excited to roll out a complete visual redesign. Aligning with Material design language, we’re introducing several user-facing updates to deliver a cleaner, more premium store that improves app discovery and accessibility for our diverse set of users.
You can check three screenshots of the updated Play store above. Google has also provided a summary of the visual changes that this update brings.
- To make browsing faster and easier, we’ve 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.
- There are now two distinct destinations for games and apps, which helps us better serve users the right kind of content. Once users find 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 your app. You’ll also notice our new icon system with a uniform shape, helping content to stand out more over UI.
If you haven’t received the Play Store update yet, you should be able to get it soon, as we got this update on four of our Nokia smartphones.
