Google Play app store in–line for overhaul

Google Play looks set to enjoy a major design overhaul, after one of the company’s software engineers showed off plans on Google+.

Krill Grouchnikov posted images to the company’s social network showing a much more simplified design, which ditches the six app categories currently available for just two: Entertainment and Apps and Games.

There are also planned changes on how different languages read on screen when you open Google Play, which should help Android in its global battle for supremacy with iOS.

In all, the design looks a lot less clunky and dated than the current iteration of Google Play, which lacks the same slick looks as Apple’s App Store.

Grouchnikov said that the new–look Google Play would be launching ‘soon’, but did not give a specific date. But with Marshmallow’s rollout now underway, users shouldn’t have to wait too long to try the updated store out.
