Recently, the Google Play Store has been the subject of several different leaks and rumors, one of the more notable ones being the addition of the sliding “hamburger” menu that Google is so fond of. Tonight, we’re seeing that rumor come to life with a small update to the Play Store. This update does indeed contain the sliding menu and not really anything else.
The update number is 4.4 and unless you’re head over heels about the hamburger menu, there’s not much point in going through the steps to force the update. It’ll be rolling out to everyone on Android 2.2 Froyo and up in the coming weeks so just hold your horses. Of course, the benefit that the update brings is that the Play Store design is now a bit more in-line with many of Google’s other apps and the Holo design in general. We certainly can’t bash that.
Are you a fan of the current Holo app design?
