Google Play store redesign starts to roll out for Android smartphones and tablets

Google has started to roll out its redesigned Google Play store to Android devices. It offers a cleaner, quicker interface to get to the content that matters to you most.

Images are the order of the day on the new design, with Google saying it wanted pictures to "jump off the page". It has further emphasised related content, so more recommendations will appear on pages. Purchasing has also been simplified, so it is easier to get through the checkout than before.

The new-style Google Play store will be rolling out gradually today to devices running Android 2.2 (Froyo) or above. However, you may have to wait a bit longer, especially if you're not in the US, as the company says that it could take a few weeks to reach every corner of the globe.

Certainly, when Pocket-lint checked on a UK Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy S3, the Google Play store was yet to feature the refreshed design. We'll update as and when any of our devices get access.
