Prior to the release of Android L, Google has started rolling out updates to its Play Store application, updating to the Play Store 5.0. This update is focused on bringing the user interface of the application in line with that of Android L. The icons have become flatter and bolder. Each section – Applications, Games, Music, Books, Movies & TV, and the News Stand each have a different color code. There is a sharp visual contrast between the background and the icons itself making it seem more spaced out and giving it an overall better appeal . The so called ‘hamburger’ button or rather the icon on the top left of the screen has been shifted a little to the right-hand side of the screen and its size has been increased, with a small animation when used.
When we open an application to download or to check out the updates, you will see the ‘what’s new’ section highlighted in green. This makes it easier for users to know what changes have been made to the app. Over-all the materialistic design to the app gives it a feel-better impression and makes it easier to use. With the inclusion of multiple bug fixes, it gets a thumbs up from our side.
