Google testing card-like interface for search results in the Play Store app

161

The Google Play Store is changing the way it shows you search results. Instead of a list of apps that scrolls, you will see a card-like interface for each app that includes the screenshot images found on the actual Play Store listing. The cards also scroll. However, instead of seeing seven apps appear at a time, the larger size of the cards leave room for only 3.5 to be viewable at once. Also gone is the three dot menu to the right of each app listing. All that included was a link to install the app, or a link to add the app to you wishlist.

Just because Google is testing this out, it doesn’t mean that we will see this card interface rolled out to all users of the Google Play Store. It’s possible that if Google receives enough positive feedback from those who get to test out the new search interface, we will see it implemented for all Android users. Frankly, we find it less crowded. You can also see at a glance the number of times an app has been downloaded.
