The Google Play store is taking on a new look, which replaces the colorful green title in favor of a brighter white style like most of Google’s redesigns recently. Recall that earlier this year the Gmail application also lost its red title as part of the same upgrade program.
Like the App Store for iOS, which underwent similar large-scale processing two years ago, the new Google Play now has separate tabs for apps, games, books, and another for movies and TV shows. A tab bar will appear at the bottom for phones and on the sidebar for tablets and devices running Chrome OS. Google will also show store icons with rounded rectangles, like in iOS, which gives a more holistic look to the store.
The updated store will recommend applications specifically for the user in the “Recommended for you” section (not to be confused with the paid advertisement recommendations that it’ll also offer under the similar-sounding “Suggested for you” label).
According to some reports, the updated Google Play should be launched in the very near future.
