Google Play Store gets a visual revamp: Here are the changes

Google Play Store visual revamp

Google is making concerted efforts at improving its Google Play app store by adding a number of information which Android users can see at a glance. So, essentially as compared to the previous versions, when the users had to tap on each app to know the size, app developer category, app rating and the download count, as per the changes all of these features can be seen directly in the Google Play search results. One can see the download count at the end of the last line as 100M+, 10M+, 500K+ and a lot more.

However, there is a catch. This chance which is mentioned by Android Police, is only visible in limited regions and has not been in place for all the users across regions. However, Google’s minor change will definitely save Android users few moments and couple of taps.

It should also be mentioned here that Google Play was hiding apps when someone searched for ‘Coronavirus’ or ‘COVID-19’ in the app store. As per Google, this was there way of curbing and tackling misinformation about the virus outbreak. Also, the related search results which were about ‘coronavirus games’, ‘coronavirus game’, ‘coronavirus map live’ and ‘coronavirus tracker’ did not yield any results.

The tech firm has been taking a number of steps in order to make the users aware about the coronavirus. It has launched an SOS alert for coronavirus along with the World Health Organisation (WHO) in January.

Hence, users who will now search for coronavirus on Google will now see safety tips, info, resources and Twitter updates from WHO. Also, the company has rolled out a number of new website that acts as a hub for all the information about coronavirus and about the different steps which can be done to curb the spread.
