The version desk from the Google Play Store is finally updating, after being tested last November with some users. A version finally unified with the mobile application of the Google Play Store, which had been revisited in the colors of Material You.

Consistency between the different platforms of the Play Store

For Google, this is an opportunity to unify the interfaces between the different platforms on which the Play Store is requested: mobile application, Google TV, web, etc. What you find more easily between the different versions.

This is what we can see on the application pages: it now looks much more like what we find on the mobile application. The background is white, the shape of the buttons is rounded and the color slightly modified. A priori, no dark mode is available on the new web version of the Play Store. However, there are still some views that have not been changed, such as the library and the wishlist in the ” Books “. An aesthetic overhaul that has been done (almost) everywhere, especially in the application library.

The redesign is also present on mobile devices: there is a bar at the bottom of the screen with the different sections of the Play Store: games, applications, cinema, books, children.

A filter by device for the search of applications

Now when you search for an application, there is an additional filter: ” Device “. It allows you to filter the applications displayed in the search results according to the device on which you want to install it. These devices displayed are those on which your Google account is connected.
