While the vast majority of us are currently running Google Play Store version 3.10.14, it appears as if a leaked build of the all new, Card-ified Play Store version 4.0.16 has leaked into the wild and it has completely revamped Google’s online marketplace. As we mentioned, things look a whole lot more simpler and easier to view than before with a cleaner, more card-like interface.
One of the biggest changes — besides the UI of course — is the removal of the “App will be downloaded and installed” screen, meaning that when you click on “install,” Google Play does just that and you can continue viewing the app listing. No more annoying back button, no more “Keep Shopping” button. Also, it appears as if all apps are auto-updated by default, with a new option to select if you don’t want an app to auto-update. An interesting move, no doubt.
You can watch the full hands on via the video below, we don’t imagine it’ll be too much longer before we’ll be enjoying this latest update on our own devices (at the very longest it’ll be introduced with Key Lime Pie during Google I/O in May). What do you guys think of the new Google Play Store? Anyone absolutely hate it?
