Google announces Google Play redesign, rolling-out now

After a slew of leaks, Google has officially unveiled the redesigned Google Play Store for Android users. Company today noted in a blog post that the redesigned Play Store is slowly being rolled-out to all Android phones and tablets that are powered by Android 2.0 or above.

The company expects the roll-out to complete in the next few weeks for all global users.

The Google Play redesign brings Google Now like cards design as well bigger images to Play Store.  Now, Google Play will also group the similar content together to help with the discovery.

“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,” Google noted in a blog post.

While, the phones and 7-inch tablets have similar Google Play design, Google has better used the bigger display real-estate in 10-inch tablets.

There is no redesign for the web-version at the moment, but we would certainly like to see it getting revamped soon.
