Google intros new look for Google Play Store

Google today introduced a new look for the Google Play Store for Android devices running 2.2 Froyo or later. The premise behind the new design is to make things quicker and easier to download and experience.  Rolling out in stages starting from today, the app focuses on bigger images, better content grouping, and a better recommendation engine. Rounding things out, the purchase process has also been streamlined.

The new UI is simple and easier to browse. Collections are front and center on the homepage, helping users discover great content through recommendations and curated lists. Items in collections are now presented as cards, with a larger area for your app’s graphics and a larger touch target for users. Overall, the homepage surfaces more apps than before and highlights them more effectively right on the page.

Keep an eye on your Google Play Store app and let us know what you think of the new look.  Do you find it more enjoyable?
