New Google Play Store officially released

I remember it like it was just yesterday – Google’s big Play Store unveiling, complete with the radical new dark, edgy design we’ve all become accustomed to over the past couple of years. This was actually over a year ago now, in March of 2012, and Google isn’t standing still – today Google unveiled a radically redesigned Play Store app on Android, opting out of that fanciful dark interface for an elegant, clean, bright color scheme and based around cards, actually rather similar to Apple’s iOS 6 App Store redesign.

The new Google Play update should be appearing on most Android devices running Android 2.2 and later, though given the fragmented nature of Android it could take some time for the change to become really all encompassing. Or, if you’re a bit on the techie side, you could head over here and force the app to update whenever your little heart desires – but you didn’t hear that from me.


Looks interesting. Will have to plop it on my HP TouchPad shortly.
