The Google Play Store seems to be finally ready for a new look, with Google focusing its attention on the website version of the Play Store this time.
Android Police have seen the new design, which changes up the look quite a bit from the older site design, with the boxy, cluttered look having been replaced for a design reminiscent of Material You, with rounded corners and removing the side navigation bar, which did not sit well in the design.
The Settings, app management, and other key aspects are now available by clicking the user thumbnail, similar to the mobile version of the Play Store.
What Has Changed with the New Play Store Redesign?
To the top now resides a selection of chips to filter the apps by your device type, which will make it easier for you to find the exact app for your devices, especially in the middle of a search, something that Google has been teasing for a while.
Furthermore, the app pages now consume more area of the display by offering a fullscreen experience. To sum it up, the experience looks much nicer and cleaner than before.
Do note that this change seems to be live in the Korean and Taiwanese regions, but the US version of the Google Play Store on the web is yet to receive the same. Also, the app library seems to be the same as before.

What Else is Google Working on?
In other Google news, recently Android Authority has found out that the Pixel 6 charging speed using the original adapter does not reach the stated 30W.
The maximum output seems to have been 22 watts. All this leads to the fact that the Pixel 6 charges in reality for about two hours, gradually reducing the power. The situation with third-party charging adapters is similar.
A week passed and Google decided to explain how the Pixel 6 charging works, and also made adjustments to its power. So, on a special thread in the Pixel community, the company announced that it has offered new batteries to balance autonomy, fast charging and durability.
It stated that the power supplied to the phone on a single charge varies due to several variables such as battery and system design, temperature, system usage and state of charge.
Google has confirmed that charging power “gradually” drops in order to improve battery health as it approaches full capacity. It also now states that “the peak power that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro draw from a wired charger is 21W and 23W, respectively”.
