All Eyes on Android: Google’s Play Store Redesign Puts Emphasis on Media

For now, the final redesign is being discussed in hints and rumors, but it’s a fact that Google will launch a new look for all of Android when it releases Android L, the final public release of which should arrive in the fall.

According to a TechCrunch post, “the latest version sports something called ‘Material Design,’ a new set of principles for user interface creation that’s meant to make software better for touchscreens and high density displays.”

The redesign — according to leaks from people in the know — puts a strong emphasis on media, including screenshots, banners, and video trailers. Tablet pages for movies and apps “look pretty much like some early preview designs revealed at Google I/O this year during a session specifically addressing Material Design in Google Play. These put the app or media information and buy links above a full bleed visual backdrop that can be either a solid color, a cover image, or a video trailer depending on the type of content featured.”

For smartphone, the interface is designed to give shoppers an easy way to figure out what the thing they’re looking at is all about without having to scroll or dive in for more. That will be a welcome functional upgrade over the current design, which can bury a description, requiring users to spend what many think is an inordinate amount of time before they get to the functional information they seek.
