Google Overhauls Google Play Store For Web

Google has officially launched the new web version of the Play Store which is similar to the Android version. According to a post on the official Google Play page on Google+, the fresh new look will allow users to “play like never before” in search of apps. The update brings larger images for apps and enhances the overall look.

The left hand side of the homepage has quick links to main contents of the Play Store like Apps, Books, Movies and Devices. It looks like the main aim of the redesign is to make app discovery easy. The update brings larger screenshots and images for apps and makes the entire content of the store simple and clean. Pages on the Play Store load more quickly and offers content with big icons on a single page which increases scrolling. The individual app pages are sporting an all new look however, some users might feel that there is lot of empty space on the pages.

Besides the redesign Google has also added some minor tweaks like removed the the ability to view apps installed by device and filtering reviews by star rating has vanished. Also, the ‘My Wishlist’ feature that was only on Android all this time has now landed on the Web Store also. Google gave its Play Store for Android a revamp in April and it has made its web store similar to the app. Check out the revamped store and let us know what you think?
