Report: Google is again tweaking the Play Store app’s design

is testing the waters yet again on a visual change to the Store.

This time it’s a few subtle tweaks instead of a drastic overhaul, which are starting to show up on some devices already. The green background has been darkened and each app’s page has a larger install button and fewer elements.

I personally like the darker green, as it’s a less stark color choice. I’m not sold on that giant installation button, but the rest of the page is much cleaner with other elements moved down.

There’s no APK to get this look right now, as it must be hitting devices based on a server side switch controlled by Google. Other reports indicate it’s coming to a variety of phones in waves, so keep a lookout for it.

The impact on you: Google doesn’t stay the same for long. However, it appears that Google is mostly settled on the current design and is only making some minor adjustments that are probably based on user testing. If some unforeseen major change pops up, we’ll be sure to let you know about it.
