The new Play Store is all white.
Google is rolling out a major redesign of the Google Play store. Over the past few months the design was slowly taking shape through limited testing but now it seems that the design is finally coming to a number of devices. The designs are likely to stay this time with the launch of Android Q on the horizon.
Just like Google’s final beta for Android Q with a change in Back gesture, the brand new design is another experiment made by Google for Play Store. The design is in line with the Android 9 Pie revamped “material design” spec that was launched last year.
The intention of pouring whiteness for the Play Store is- to ultimately make it resembles Google’s homepage. And to match the homepage, the redesigned Play Store will remove its colorful headings- pink for movies, green for Games and applications, blue for books, instead it will be all white. Both Android P and Q will become the medium through which users can spot all whiteness and can also see the same in the new Gmail design that was launched at the beginning of this year.
Coming to the previous design of the Play Store, it was the combination of bold colored headers meant to differentiate between apps, books, movies, music exclusively sells by the Play store. Though the bold colors still exist in the form of minor highlight but the apps are mostly monochrome now. Notably, another thing which is missing here is the music tab as Google Play Music is likely to be replaced by YouTube Music.
In addition, on the main page, the different tabs will be relocated to the bottom allowing users to reach them with one hand even when using giant Android Phone. Furthermore, Tablet UI that was once abandoned by the Google due to failing repeatedly in the market place is likely to make a comeback again as Google Play Store will have a new tablet UI that will place the navigation tabs in the sidebar.
With such changes, we can say that the interface looks a lot more modern and precise compared to the previous design.
