The all new Google Play Store 5 carries more elements of Material Design which has already been accustomed earlier in the Android L Developer Preview releases.
Google Play Store APK version 5.0.38 is now available to download. Updated with a complete Material Design overhaul, Google Play Newsstand also gets updated with it, and a day after, Google+ was been updated with additional Material Design elements.
The new Google Play app icon carrier the new, flatter look, keeping itself in line with Material design’s new aesthetics. That’s what you will notice the first. Apparently, from the design language, things have also been changed under the hood.
Fire up the app and you’ll instantly recognize the subtle changes in animations when speak, accessing the slide-out drawer menu, along with changes in the iconography. The What’s New section has been moved to the top and is now visibly highlighted in green allowing for it to be prominently visible in each application listing.
The Widget Section icons for the home screen have also been changed either, maintaining the flat, paper-like design. Google moved forward in changing the notification icon for the status bar too, after all, it is this attention to detail that ultimately counts.
