Google Play Store’s latest makeover is less rough around the edges


It’s a new softer look for summer

Hardware You might be celebrating your first birthday in a few months, but that doesn’t mean all Google apps are done adopting the latest design trends. We’ve known for a few months now that the Play Store was about to get a revamped UI on Android, with pill-shaped buttons now commonplace in many of the company’s apps. It took a while, but it looks like Google is finally ready to roll out these changes to more users.

New rounded buttons.

As one of our tipsters noticed, the Play Store on Android is now rocking all-new circular buttons that make the current rectangles – even with their rounded corners – seem outdated in comparison. Pending updates, developer links, movie purchase links and more now sport those pill-shaped icons we’ve seen in other Google apps, unifying the overall design language of the app. company and setting the trend for third-party developers to follow. It also brings the app into line with the redesigned web interface, which previously implemented these new buttons when it launched a few weeks ago.


Old square buttons.

It’s certainly a small change in the grand scheme of things, but it does a great job of making all of the company’s Android apps a bit more consistent. Even within the Play Store itself, some UI elements have disappeared since the transition to Material You. For example, the search bar has been using the same rounded look for months now, although it’s only with this latest update that the app buttons have received the same attention. It also matches the tablet-friendly UI that started rolling out to large-screen devices earlier today.

It looks like this update is going mainstream for most users, though it seems tied to a server-side fix that might take a while to reach everyone. In the meantime, you can always make sure your phone is up to date by installing the latest APK from Mirror APK.
