Last month, we announced that the Play Store would have redesigned, including a new navigation bar that moved to the bottom of the screen. Although this could only be activated through feature flag scripts when we published our original post, now Google is making the new UI widely available.

As expected, the new design elements feature more rounded edges and a new navigation bar, now at the bottom of the screen. Google also reworked its original sketch by retaining the previous layout, which had an app button instead of replacing it with an initial key. However, the Music tab is not available and is only accessible through the main menu on the left. Finally, the application pages were redesigned to focus on key elements such as rating and screenshots or change logs for those already installed. The progress bar is also replaced by a circle around the app icon that fills in as the download progresses.

If you do not have the new design yet, make sure you use the latest version (15.1.24) and try clearing the application cache in the Settings menu of your phone. Otherwise, you can download and install directly from APKMirror, but you may still need to play the steps above and restart your device to see the new theme.
