Google’s Play Store has since its inception went through a few changes – almost all of them being evolutionary in nature. Frankly speaking, I never had any issues with the last version of Google Play as well. It did a decent job of projecting popular and “in vogue” apps right up on the front page. Navigating around the Store was easy as well. Anyway, Google thought that wasn’t enough and has starting today started rolling out a redesigned Google Play store application.
The new design claims to be simple, clean and is also faster compared to the outgoing version. If you are one of the few people on the planet who has already received this updated version, you might see that the revamped design sports larger images and that similarly themed apps and content are grouped together. Infinite scrolling has been added and you can keep on scrolling down as items keep on appearing. Google also says that the entire process of checking out after purchasing an app or content has been made much simpler as well.
This redesigned app is being rolled out to all Android devices running Android 2.2 and above and should be available to your device as well. Thanks to the pressure an update of this scale puts on Google’s servers, it might take a few weeks for the same to trickle down to your (probably) obscure smartphone. But then, you can always force install one if you know where to go and what to do!
