Google Play redesign

Google Play Gets a Facelift

Have you noticed anything different about Google Play this week? The app store’s mobile experience has been redesigned to make it easier to discover content across different media.

Here is more from the Google blog:

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.

The redesign went live in the U.S. on Tuesday on Android phones and tablets running Android 2.2 and above. It will roll out for the rest of the world in the coming weeks. To check out which apps are the most popular in Google Play, check out our weekly roundup of Top Android apps.
