Web-based Google Play Store redesign officially liveAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
A few months after the Android-based Google Play Store received a makeover, the web-based storefront has gotten the same treatment. A new version of the online Google Play Store is now live, sporting a card-based look that should be familiar to anyone that's been using the Android version.
After navigating to the new-look Play Store, users are presented with a list of the various sections of the store on the left side of the screen, similar to the previous Play Store. Things change once a user dives into a section, though, as each piece of content is now presented in its own card with a large preview image, just like the Android-based Play Store. Product pages themselves have undergone quite an overhaul as well, laying out all of the details of a product on a single page and providing users with larger screenshots.
Navigating the new web-based Play Store seems to be pretty snappy, and it's good to see Google finally give its web storefront the same redesign that Android users have been enjoying on their phones and tablets for months now. And hey, since you can still send apps to your Android devices from the web-based Play Store, you'll be able to spend all night exploring the depths of the redesigned shop without having to turn to your phone or tablet to install any cool software that you discover.
