Google Play revised with revised Nav, Organization on Android
For the better part of 2018, the Google Play Store for Android has been reviewing the revised navigation. Organizationally, it is easier and reduces duplication, but is a bit outlandish. Starting this evening, the Google Play redesign on Android has become broader.
For the first time we discovered and activated the new look in April with version 9.7 of Google Play. Since then, the design has matured, but the underlying principles are still there. The navigation bar is now for apps and games, with shortcuts removed to open other media stores.
While users can still quickly open the dedicated movies and TV programs, books and music from the navigation bar, they can no longer quickly browse or buy media. These new links have been moved to Account, Payment Methods, Play Protect, and Settings.
You can only access these content stores by returning to the Home screen and clicking on the corresponding tab just below the search bar

Meanwhile, the app bar in "My Apps & Games" is now heavily tuned to Google A broader design language – with the previous green accent only becomes which tab you are currently viewing. The search is handled frustratingly from the top right corner, while the top left has a back button instead of a hamburger menu.
This is intended to simplify navigation by prompting users to first return to the home screen to initiate a new action. In addition, "Wishlist" is now grouped with "Notifications" and "Subscriptions" in the nav drawer.
This white app bar is also present in the Account menu, which now uses tabs instead of a main list. The Settings tab handles emails, followed by rewards, order history, and family. The Settings menu of the Play Store is also treated in a very white color and is similar to the Google Material Theme.
12.6.13 is the current stable version of the app, but this Google Play redesign for Android will be delivered through a server-side fix will hit more devices tonight. If you have not enabled the feature, close the Google Play Store from the Recents menu and load or clear the data in the system settings.
