Google is rebuilding its Play Store for Android in some areas, but it has not been a huge success.
In theory, Google had many options up to the sleeve for the App Store for Android and Chrome OS, because one change was imaginable in various degrees. Now you are going the very short way, the change of Android app is more drastic than we expected. After the first notes months ago, the new version is now gradually reaching users, but distribution will take a lot longer again.
Google Play Store finally loses its navigation drawer
The biggest discoveries can already be found on the start page because the button for the main menu (navigation shelf) is missing. Google moves the main menu open space from place to place, which is already implemented in other applications such as Google Maps and Google Photos. If you are looking for your library and apps and games, tap your profile picture in the upper right corner of the new version.
As you can see, the main menu is not limited to a new location. Google has also changed settings significantly. There is now a clear system of four main types for quickly finding the desired settings.
- General – like automatic updates.
- User control – such as fingerprinting.
- Family – such as parental control.
- About – Certificate, etc.
What else can come
As I mentioned in the introduction, an even bigger reconstruction is imaginary. Not in terms of usage, but in terms of content. After the music and magazines have already been released, Google TV replaces the previous Movies & Series app, Can only turn the Play Store into an app for a long time. For this step, it is also important that Google wants to offer additional web applications as options in the Store Store.
Some time ago my apps were completely overhauled Began to emerge, Has not been distributed over a large area to date. For example, it has been observed that in the future applications can be shared via a nearby partition. This update has not yet appeared again.
