More eye candy is headed to the Google Play Store – Popular Characters page and What’s New receive UI tweaks


Google Play Store 5.7.10

Those of you who love keeping up with all the going-ons and UI tweaks made in the Google Play Store might notice a few new changes hitting the app in the coming days. As he often does, Googler Kirill Grouchnikov showed off a few of the new additions on his Google+ page where he says they’ll soon be rolling out in a future update.

Okay, so it’s not much, but the Popular Characters page is getting a nice little transition animation when selecting on a character. It’s not too unlike the main Play Store page where the app icon zooms over to the next page. The other change comes by way of the “What’s new” section, where the colors have been slightly tweaked with a lighter green font.

No word on exactly when we can expect the changes to rollout (expect it in version 5.7.10), but we imagine it wont be much longer now. Oh, and you’re going to need to be running Android 5.1 or higher in order to see these fun new animations.
