    [Update: APK Download] Google Play Store v5.8 Rolling Out With Hamburger-Arrow Morphing Animation

  • View All 36 Articles In This Series

With Android 5.0, Google said it’s not enough to make everything flat and colorful. The company injected animations into certain apps, and it has been rolling out more ever since. According to Googler Kirill Grouchnikov, a bold new one is set to arrive in the next version of the Play Store.

As you can see in the video, each Play Store item turns into a bubble when clicked. That bubble then floats to the top of the screen where it pops (or expands, if you’re not feeling the metaphor) into the next screen. The page then shrinks back into a bubble when you’re ready to go back.

This animation will only appear on devices running Android 5.1. This is the result of what is probably a framework bug that doesn’t affect the latest version.

Play Store 5.5 is starting to roll out now, so keep your eyes peeled.

After getting our hands on the APK, we’ve noticed that the Play Store now surfaces popular opinions above reviews. These appear as small thought bubbles with the number of people who agree listed underneath.

Version 5.5.12 Is Out

Who wants 5.5.8 when there’s a newer 5.5.12 out there just waiting to go onto your devices? We didn’t spot any notable changes, but 12 is bigger than 8, so that’s enough reason to insta-install, amiright? Grab it from APK Mirror.
