Did you notice the change in Google Play Store design at your Android devices? Google has officially launched the redesign of the Play Store across all the Android devices. The design was launched prior a week particularly for some devices, but it has now officially rolled out the design and is available for all.

The new redesign of the Play Store was based on the revamped Material design which was revealed during Google I/O last year. However, it is quite fascinating to see how Google is revamping its design across all platforms and finally, the Play Stores gets the makeover.

Coming to the design, there has been a significant change in the design that is the repositioning of the tabs. Earlier, these tabs were available at the top and were designed back when devices used to be smaller.

Also, it was quite difficult to reach on bigger devices. But the new material design repositions the important navigation tabs at the bottom (somewhat similar to iOS) hence, now the important app categories are the bottom. Whereas, on tablets, the categories appear on the left in landscape mode.

Well, the subcategories are still positioned at the top as it’s not much of use so, its hassle-free. However, you can now no longer be able to scroll sideways to move through them.

In addition to that, the app is now primarily available in white, with the categories only adding a bit slight accent colours. Nonetheless, this does make the app look classy and bright. The design will look much better with uniform bright white colour when switched to dark mode in Android Q.

While the rest changes are quite subtle and decent, with more spaced out element. Having increased white space and the new typeface which has given the app an overall beautiful and modern look.

The update is out for all the Android devices. So, next time you launch the Play Store try it out for yourself and do give some credit to Google for its efforts to bring out this change.
