Google Play Update Shows the Big Picture

Google has announced an update to Google Play that will show bigger images for books, movies, and album covers. The change will roll out to android smartphones and tablets starting today.

Explained Michael Siliski, group product manager for Google Play, in a blog post:

“The new design focuses on bigger images that jump off the page. Similarly themed content is grouped together so you can hone in on a magazine to read or an app to try. As you move down the page, new recommendations continue to appear so there is always more to see and explore. We’ve also simplified purchasing so you can breeze through checkout and get to enjoying your movie rental or other content.”

Phones and tablets with the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system and above will see the update first.
