Earlier this year, search giant Google made some pretty big changes to its Play Store for Android. Now it seems like Google hasn’t finished the changing process to its Play Store. According to leaked screenshots by Android Police, Google is currently in the process of redesigning the Play Store, yet again.
We all know that Google’s next version Android is called KitKat. It is to be noted that Android KitKat is the confirmed name for Android 4.4. However, earlier we have seen leaked images of Android 4.4 KitKat phone and messaging app UI. So far we know that Google has planned to unveil Android 4.4 KitKat later this month which is expected to bring a number of major changes.
Now leaked images revealed by Android Police show a redesigned Google Play Store for Android version 4.4. For your kind information, it’s not Android version 4.4 but the app version of the Play Store. Hence, it can’t be said at this moment for sure that whether or not this redesigned app will be released alongside the next major Android update.
However, one major change shown off by the leaked images is the replacement of Google Play Store’s existing overlay menu system with a slide-out navigation menu. Besides, based on the leaked images it seems like Google has moved a number of major options to the slide-out menu and the overlay menu seems to include the Help and Settings menus.
This redesigned version is currently being tested on Android 4.4 devices. But it is unknown right now if Google plans on rolling out Play Store version 4.4 prior to the release of Android 4.4 KitKat.
