New Google Play Store UI kills the hamburger menu for better or for worse

There have been murmurs of Google working on a UI invigorate for the Play Store for some time now. The last time Play Store got a new look was in 2019 when it carried out the new Material theme with a new color plan and base route bar. While those components have stayed, this most recent update moves around some UI components in an effort to make things look cleaner.

At the point when you first open the new Play Store UI, you’ll notice that the hamburger menu on the left side is no longer there. You’ll be welcomed with an exchange disclosing to you that the Play Store menu things have all been moved to your profile thumbnail. Clicking it will raise the menu, which has been consolidated. For example, the choice to open the Play Books or Play Movies and TV applications has been moved to Library alongside the list of things to get. Installments and Subscriptions have likewise been dense into one single menu thing.

The settings menu additionally gets a redesign, one that was recently spotted before. Rather than rattling off every one of the settings, they’re currently dense into expandable organizers that demonstrate where you can discover certain settings. A few components to the application search are likewise changed. An inquiry will presently pull up an augmented card where you can undoubtedly tap to introduce the application rather than first dispatching the application page.

Unfortunately, not every one of the progressions to the Play Store are being wagered emphatically, with some griping about how Google is concealing menu things and making them more hard to track down:

It is worth noticing that one issue with the hamburger menu was that it was inaccessible because of the expanding size of the best Android telephones like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Google’s motion route in Android is regularly questionable in such manner and did little to determine that. Moving the menu to another component at the highest point of the screen appears to exacerbate the situation since tapping the profile thumbnail has all the earmarks of being the solitary alternative at this point.

Have you gotten the new Play Store UI yet? What are your contemplations on the changes?
