The ‘My Apps’ section of the Play Store that we see in our Android smartphones, has been re-designed with a condensed and a tighter layout which makes better use of space. The new design also gives users information useful for them at a glance without the requirement of extra taps or switching between screens.

The most significant change of the new update is the separation of updates and installed section. The ‘Update’ section just shows the app which needs to be updated. It also shows the size of the update date and when you last updated them. On the other hand, the ‘Installed’ section shows the entire info about the apps which are already installed on your smartphone. It also shows the total size and the last time you had used it.

The ‘Installed’ tab, which also has been revamped, will now allow users to sort hundreds of apps of yours in four criteria, as per The Verge. The criteria include:

  • Alphabetical
  • Size
  • Last Used
  • Last Updated

The new interface no longer requires the user to go through multiple taps and screens in order to know about the update. All unnecessary info such a ratings, developer, among others, have been removed from the app cards.

Founded as Android Market in 2008 and changed to Google Play in 2012, this digital distribution service has seen over 2.7 million apps getting published in 2017.
