Google has been introducing a lot of changes in all its application and obviously the famous Google Play Store for Android smartphones has seen changes over time. But the layout for Google Play Store desktop hasn't seen any changes as of now and by the looks of it a news and interesting interface is required.
The search engine giant teased the arrival of the new Google Play (version 4.9.13) on Twitter on Wednesday, publishing images of the new look and revealing that the update will be available "in the coming days." The tweet said, "Our latest update is rolling out right now! We're excited to share a sneak peek of what you'll get in the coming days."
Notably, the new update to the Google Play has an image-centric layout, and also introduces elements of the company's much-touted Material Design philosophy. The design theme of the Play store is based on Google's recently unveiled design guidelines called 'Quantum Paper', and internally codenamed as Material Design, which were showcased at the I/O developers' conference. We had seen the new design with the updated Google+, Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps.

Google seems to be aware of the development - according to a leaked screenshot of a test layout for the Play Store, Mountain View might be poised to bring the similar app suggestions to the right side of the screen, in a dedicated sidebar. Other apps from the same developer are also being shown.
Some of the changes noted by the publication include redesigned animations; revamped layout with focus on Google+ (+1s); full-screen app descriptions, and how video trailers for apps now appear at the top of every listing, replacing the image gallery.
Several sources claim that Google is currently testing a new layout for the Play Store. Now, as most of us know, when you open the page of a given app, the Play Store suggests some similar ones all the way at the bottom of the page, which is not quite intuitive and user-friendly.
