Alphabet Inc owned Google Play now has a fresh and redesigned look. There are eye-catching changes which you will not fail to notice. The most prominent of this being the separator tabs on the main interface. These separators are included for ‘Apps and Games’ as well as ‘Entertainment.’
Sections in Entertainment
The app world for entertainment for Android devices is massive. Therefore, Play is now neatly sub-sectioned into Movies & TV, Books as well as Newsstand besides Music. There is a separate section for games, categories as well as top charts besides family and editor’s choice.
The redesign does not stop just here. The application now has pill-shaped buttons as part of the new theme on the app. The scrolling tabs are now replaced by the pill-shaped button.
Recently, the app store has revised policies for developers at Play Store. Called the Developer Program Policies, they provide further guidance to developers. Additionally, they also have Sensitive Events policy, as well as new deceptive behavior language. It also includes advanced guidance for the payment section and more.
The play store design tweak is mainly around the user interface. Until recently, the app store had all of the apps as well as games all on the same main page, including TV, music as well as books.
Now, the cluttered all-one-page is of the past. The new-look app main page has two major tabs around which the entire store is arranged. The first tab is for apps and games with the second tab for entertainment apps.
With the apps store redesigned, apps for Android device are now well organized. Google Play’s affordable apps have become easier to explore and download due to the specified tabs for the various categories.
Google Play in July had a down-pricing policy for Apps in certain specific consumer segments. The lowering of prices has encouraged better purchase experience for newer audiences. Alphabet Inc is banking on an increase in the number of Android users in such markets. Developers will soon be able to create in-app purchases and other monetizing features, once such market matures.
