    Late yesterday, Google updated their Play Store to version 4.9.13. This new version brings a number of changes, tweaks and improvements, but the biggest alteration is that it now uses their new "Material Design" UI aesthetic.

    Here's a quick breakdown of most of the changes:
    • Change logs are only visible to folks who have apps installed
    • Images and trailers are now a primary focus (you can see they take up a large part of the top area)
    • App descriptions now go full-screen
    • App size and version has been moved out of the way and is now in the app’s description
    • The +1 and sharing button have been moved and are now below the featured reviews
    • Images and videos now blend into the background
    Overall, the design seems very simplified, but that isn't a bad thing. It's definitely cleaner and more efficient. Share your thoughts after you grab the update.
