Google Play Store redesigns ‘management of apps’ redesign [Gallery]


Since last year’s Material Theme Revamp and Dark Theme, the Play Store for Android has remained relatively unchanged. Google Play is now working to redesign the “My Apps” list, which will soon be called “Manage Applications and Devices”, while we also activated a more integrated P2P sharing experience today .

About APK Insight: In this ‘APK Insight’ post, we have decomposed the latest version of an application that Google has uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompose these files (called APKs in the case of Android apps), we can see different lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ship these features at any time, and our interpretation of what may happen may be incomplete. We will try to enable those who are close to ending, however, to show you how they will look in the case that they ship. With this in mind, read on.

“My Apps and Games” is currently long-pressed from the navigation drawer or on the Play Store’s homescreen icon. Today there are four tabs, “update” with a list of new and recent apps. This is primarily the section with which users interact. This is followed by an all “installed” list, “library,” and “beta”.

We have enabled a new design that has been under development for the past several weeks. There is a possibility that it is still being worked on and may change before launch. It starts with renaming the “Manage Apps and Devices” page from Google Play, providing a more accurate description of what you can do with this action.

An “overview” tab quickly notes whether updates are available and gives users a quick shortcut to “update all” or “view details” – more on that later. Next, you have a storage indicator and shortcut of “Your rating and review”.
