Google Play Store will be bringing in a new update to its existing version with 5.0.31 and 5.0.32. With the release of Android L, most of the Google Apps are getting invaded by the Material Design language. Material Design Concept is all about paper effect. The User Interfaces and screens are like sheets of paper stacked or lying side by side. This update brings the pretty comprehensive redesign within the Android’s latest material design guidelines. The update starts with the new ‘flatter’ play store icon and continues throughout the app with the resolute colors, some strong animations, large images and better applications of shadows and coloring.
The app is being rolled out in phases, so you may not be the first one to catch the update yet. You can either open your play store from time to time to be lucky enough catch the update or you can download and install on your own from here.
After getting the update you will immediately notice the new animations for the slide-in panel and the newly associated hamburger button which changes to the way, the ‘What’s new’ section of the app listing is highlighted and properly displayed. App listings don’t change themselves dramatically, a lot of that has come in the last update, but everything else like the search results and installed apps list come up a lot faster.

Apart from these artistic changes, updated play store feels a bit hasty and still we need to notice any other chops, slowdowns or loading screens. There is still a doubt whether this is the just animation trick or the real improvement, but it feels certainly better. ‘What’s new’ section is now highlighted in green and once you click on it, you are directly taken into the content with no necessity to scroll down. It is a one-two punch function and design which has excited us for the future Material design updates of other Google apps.
If you are not seeing any update of Google Play Store on your phone, just stay patient. Generally all the Google apps will be rolled out for a few weeks after releasing. Let it come to you and you will soon get it and avoid the problems in future by not having the oddball version.
What can you expect in the future?
You can expect a huge influx of Google apps being based on this new form of technology called Material Design in the near future. The invasion may not just remain to Google Apps.
