A few moments ago Googler Kirill Grouchnikov announced via his Google+ profile that an all new version of the Google Play Store is currently rolling out to Android devices. Still in the first phase of its rollout, Google Play 4.9.13 brings a whole new fresh can of paint to the former Android market.
Featuring Google’s recently unveiled Material Design, app, game, and other listings have been revamped enough that you’re going to want this. Now. You’ll notice huge featured banners are once again making their return with embedded video trailers where available.
Other changes include Google+ recommendations from friends and buttons for reviews or similar apps/games all lumped into the same section. Wordy text for listings has also been cleaned up, hidden behind an additional button press in order to view full app or game descriptions (once installed, only the changelog will be displayed).
For those that simply can’t wait for it to roll out to their device, a 3rd party download link has been provided below for manual installation. Enjoy!
