Google Play Store v14.5.52 Tests a Material Theme Redesign and Lays Groundwork for Installing APEX Packages on Android Q

Google has taken off Material Theme redesign for apps like Google Photo, Google calculator, Google Calander, Google Home, Google Keep, Project Fi, Files, Google Drive and more. The most recent app to join the Material Theme redesign gathering will be the Google Play Store. The publication is spotted certain update-related strings inside the app, which we believe is for installing APEX bundles directly from the Play Store.


We activated the Google Material Theme redesign on the most recent version of the Google Play Store, for example, version 14.5.52, with help from our Recognized Developers and with this redesign, the most noteworthy change is the base bar that contains tabs for Home, Games, Movies & TV and Books sections for simpler navigation. The icons are empty and monochrome, changing to their allotted accent color when the tab is chosen. The Search bar presently has rounded corners. The homepage gets to dispose of the settled tabs and icons for classes. The homepage likewise sees the new adjusted square icon being consistently enforced.

The App Info page presently features the Google Sans font style. There is presently a longer button for installing apps. The download indicator has additionally been changed, as it is currently circular and around the app icon. In the “My Apps and Games” screen, there is another Permissions section.

We believe, however, that these strings relate to support for the new APEX packages that are as of now live in Android Q. There are right now six APEX bundles within Android Q, and it will likewise be mandatory for OEMs to use Google’s packages, as indicated by our own source.
