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.
Google seems to be going back to the previous Play Store interface, according to some tips we received. The color user interface returns – for at least a little bit anyway.

Subsequent updates to the Play Store have returned the interface and taken it back again. Someone has to buy the Play Store team some flip-flops as they slip a lot into the new user interface.
Several redditors and users have reported that the new interface has appeared on their device, which seems to have disappeared lately. , Interestingly, this time it appears in Chrome OS as well.
We're not sure if the new interface is here to stay or whether Google is still testing things, but a large number of users seem to have received it. Unfortunately, only two people in our team have the new user interface, but it's common for Google to gradually roll out the new features. We'll keep you posted as we learn more about implementing the new interface.
