Play Store will get a major redesign in coming days


Google is going to Apple. Yes, in a recent APK teardown by 9to5Google, they found the Play Store app will be redesigned completely.

And why I am saying Gong Apple? Because, Google is bringing the bottom navigation, just like Apple has on its App Store.

Don’t believe me?

Yup, that is a complete change to the UI as well. You can see that the app is now moving to a new theme called Material Refresh from Google. This theme, Google already released in the Gmail app as well.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The app carousel in the homepage now hosts the name and the icon of the apps. And, the More text’s replaced by a Right Arrow.

And, now as per Google Play Guidelines, the apps now have the new Squircle shape in the carousel.

However, the app does have a cleaner look, and more whitish than green or red or orange before. We can also hope that they bring the Dark Mode with Android Q as well. However, the design is right now under development phase, so expect this redesign to come a bit later.
