Change to tablet version of Google Play Store slated for November 21
The Google Play Store will get a slight tweak on November 21, according to a new post on the Android Developer’s blog. Aimed at providing even more visibility for tablet-optimized apps, the default layout will be adjusted for those browsing the store with a tablet. Apps that do not meet the full criteria of “designed for tablets” will be marked as “designed for phones”, even when viewed from a tablet.
On November 21, the Play Store will make a series of changes so it’s even easier for tablet users to find those apps that are best for their devices. First, by default, users browsing Google Play on a tablet will now see apps and games that are designed for tablets on the top lists (Top Paid, Top Free, Top Grossing, Top New Paid, Top New Free, and Trending). Tablet users will still be able to switch the view so they can see all apps or games if they choose.
In the meanwhile, Android app developers are encouraged to update their apps to meet Google’s standards.
