Google’s New Material Play Store UI Update Brings Navigation Bar To Bottom

Today, Google has rolled out the new Material Play Store interface for all users. This feature was earlier optional and could only be activated by changing feature flags. Now Google has rolled out the update to all the users.

As part of the design update, the navigation bar is now moved to the bottom of the screen. The app button is retained and not replaced with a home button. Furthermore, navigation bars include Games, Apps, Movies & TV and Books. Meanwhile, the new design elements sport rounded edges and look somewhat refreshing. That being said, the design would have looked better if all the app icons were rounded at the edge.

It is also worth noting that Google has overhauled the app pages. The focus is now on the rating and screenshots along with the changelog for apps that you have already installed. The progress bar is now a circle engulfing the app icon and it seems like the designers were inspired by the Apple App Store. Overall, the new design looks slick, however, the bottom positioned navigation bar may need a bit of getting used to.

The Music menu is no more a tab, instead, it has been displaced to the navigation drawer and is now titled “Browse Music.” In order to get the new material design, make sure you have updated to the latest 15.1.24 version. Also, try clearing your app’s cache. Alternatively, you can also download the latest build from APK Mirror and side-load the app from below.
