Google is rolling out a brand new UI for the Play Store app. The new UI is much cleaner and simpler compared to the old one. Google has also added a new navigation bar and has even separated Apps and Games into two different sections.
The new UI depicts Google’s Material Design philosophy in a subtle way. Google has also taken a page out of Apple’s playbook and it’s hard to ignore the white background, brighter colours and the new navigation bar which reminds of Apple’s Store design. Moreover, Google has also improved the bottom navigation bar which now has four sections: Games, Apps, Movies & TV and Books.

Google has also changed the design of the individual listing pages with bigger install buttons and richer app information. Google has also improved the icons as the new ones are more rounded and uniform compared to the old ones. As for the Music tab, Google has relocated it and it now sits inside the hamburger menu.
The new updated Play Store UI is rolling out to all the Android users and it requires no action on the user’s part to get the new update.
