Google Play Store: This Friday (19), the Android Police portal informed, in partnership with an undisclosed source, that the Google Play Store website will receive a design update, making it similar to the app for mobile devices.
As you can see below, the previous “square” aesthetic has been abandoned: the edges of program thumbnails have been rounded and more space is offered to services. In addition, the current search bar next to the logo has been replaced by the four main sections of the store: games, apps, movies and books. If games and apps are selected, you can filter the results by device types, such as tablets, TVs and Chromebooks, for example.
Another notable change is the absence of the settings vertical bar and additional account information on the left side — libraries, subscriptions, payment methods, and more. Google has changed the location of the elements to a submenu in the upper right corner, which is accessible through the customer’s profile picture.
Within individual apps, the aesthetics of the mobile version are even more evident. A huge highlight is given to the selected program, along with a gigantic icon. A column on the right highlights developer contact and suggestions for other services. The rest of the interface follows the store’s standard for smartphones, with the number of downloads, reviews and the rating.
