The web version of the Google Play Store looks to be getting a small refresh, with a notable change in how similar apps are displayed. The layout is similar to that of the classic YouTube layout, with similar apps listed on the right side of the content. The content that you’re viewing has become narrower and more streamlined, with a distinct vertical layout now. Similar apps are placed alongside the content, rather than at the bottom.
The change isn’t huge, but it gives a very different look and feel. The current version of the web Play Store displays content so that it fills the screen horizontally and it’s always felt stretched. This new version shrinks it up on the sides and takes away that stretch that simply didn’t look appealing. We’re still waiting on a full Material Design overhaul for the web version, but at least we’re seeing improvement.
