Google has begun rolling out version 5.0.31 of the Play Store that includes a visual overhaul with Material Design and some new layouts. The update leaked out a few weeks back and marked a significant, but welcome, change in the Google Play Store. It’s also an indicator that the launch of Android L is growing closer, as more and more apps continue to get updated to support the new Material Design standard.
The Google Play Store now entirely follows Material Design with smooth animations, revised colors and larger, cleaner visuals. The icon has also been redone with a new design featuring shadows and the depth that we’ve come to know with Material Design. In terms of layout changes, the What’s New section has moved back up to the top of the description box and is highlighted in green. Aside from that, most things are the same aside from a refreshed design.
