Ever since Google announced its new Material Design UI overhaul at Google I/O last month, we’ve been eagerly awaiting updates to each of Google’s core apps. We’ve had sneak peeks at what the change might mean for the Google Play Store, but Google UI engineer, Kirill Grouchnikov, today announced on his Google+ that the new Play Store would be launching today with all of these changes. Sure enough, Google Play Store 4.9.13 has been captured today, and boy is it different.
Much like the changes we saw in Google Play Games earlier this month, the Google Play Store UI overhaul replaces the simple interface with big pictures and smooth, sweeping transition animations. Other changes include the way embedded videos are displayed, recommendations from friends, and hiding long app descriptions.
If you can’t wait to try that Material Design-look Play Store, have no fear as we have the APK available for download below:
