Google Play Store Website Gets Redesign With Bigger Thumbnails & More White Space
The Web version of the Google Play Store has been redesigned to mimic the Google Play Store mobile app with larger thumbnails and more white space. With less content on the screen, users must scroll more to access additional content.
GoogleSystem.blogspot.com reports the Google Play site now uses AJAX and leverages the modern Roboto font, but also comes with a few bugs, citing that the Romanian version includes exclamation marks to separate words.
Along with the new redesign, CNET’s Don Reisinger noted that the Google Play Store is now showing Google Glass as a supported device for Google Play applications. “Upon choosing Google Glass in the dropdown, however, users find that it cannot be chosen because they have not opened the Google Play Store app recently on this device,” writes Reisinger.
