The Android Play Store regularly updates its interface to better highlight the important elements of Google's business strategy. The last major update dates back to May 2019, with the adoption of Material Design and a simplification of ergonomics. Almost two years later, Google decided to launch a new version with some significant changes.
What you immediately notice is the disappearance of the hamburger menu at the top left of the Play Store. The icon has been replaced by a magnifying glass, to better highlight the store's search engine. To access all management elements, you now need to search for them from your user profile at the top right. This obviously resembles the other applications in the Google ecosystem such as Gmail or Google Photos.
This change of interface allows Google above all to offer more of the user's profile and its loyalty system with Play Points that allow access to credit in free-to-play games, thanks to its purchases in the app.
Part of the architecture has also been revised. The payments and subscriptions are now combined into a menu with the idea to simplify navigation in the Google Play store, which over time had become more complex.
The Google Play Store settings and search have also been revised. In the latter, if you are looking for some popular app, Google can offer it as the first highlighted result, with the possibility of installing it quickly with one click.
The new Google Play Store is launching in its version 24.7.20-21.
