We have received word that the new Play Store has started rolling out officially to Australians. We saw a few days ago that the recommended content was added for those that manually updated to the latest version but it is good to see Google officially rolling it out.

The new layout adds the Cards UI which Google have been using for a lot of their apps lately and I must say that I am a fan of the new interface.

Have you received the official update? Do you like the new layout? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks: Chris Spencer.

    New Play Store landed on my Galaxy S3 sometime yesterday. It was ‘old’ version in the morning but by early afternoon it changed to the ‘new layout’. Not sure I like it. It looks too ‘busy’ at first glance.

    Got it on the Nexus 7. Front page looks really nice and clean, but as you go through it the UI is really big and doesn’t fit as nice.

    They have just released 4.0.27. The only difference from 4.0.26 are minor bug fixes and translations

    Look at the address of your link: http://www.wowtechy.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/android-market-makeover.jpg

    That’s from march 2011, over 2 years ago.
    Not surprisingly it looks like froyo eh?

    I had it ages ago, surprised it took this long. But it annoys me that Google seems to go for big, I liked the old one better, it fit so much more into the screen.

    It looks so much nicer, but I do miss the ‘Featured’ sections. Their recommendations are awful.

    The fact that they are updating this for gingerbread and onwards is a good thing.
    For the people who own older devices and are thinking of updating to a new phone will be more familiar with the new card look ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the update, I was just about to ask if it was only my n4 not getting the update.
