The new design of Play Store on Android TV
Most of the Android TV users have already witnessed new changes. Moreover, the new update is pretty good and is available on all Android devices. The update was spotted on Reddit. According to the reports, Google will be releasing the new update all over the globe. Unfortunately, users with older Android TV devices won’t get the new update.
The new design mainly focuses on app discovery. Currently, Android TV has more than 5,000 applications. So Google wants users to find these applications easily by displaying it on their app discovery. Furthermore, they might recommend some apps which you might enjoy. Moreover, categories like Games, Sports, Entertainment, and Productivity will include themes like ‘Movie nights start’ or ‘Start streaming’ to improve your experience.
This new update is quite similar to Apple’s App Store, which has some personalized features for Apple users. Apart from that, the new visual design looks more appealing.

Besides, it has added video preview features that will give a cinematic experience to the user. Google has always tried to up its game by expanding its Android brand all over the internet.
