Android L is on its way and countless developers have been busy updating their applications to line up with the look and feel of Google’s Material Design language. In addition to third-party devs, the search giant has managed to tweak some of its own in-house software as well and the folks at Android Police have managed to get their hands on some early screenshots of an upcoming update for Google Play.

Billed as Google Play 5.0, this unreleased software features some minor, yet noticeable visual changes. One of the first subtle changes you’ll notice are the brighter colors in the app sections, which give things more of a pop. These snazzy new hues extend all the way down to the updated category tabs, giving the Play Store more of a balance. Following a new color palette, Google’s updated app depot will soon feature new Material Design animations.


It’s unknown when Google Play 5.0 will be ready for mass consumption, however we definitely like what we’re seeing so far.
