Google on Monday released the redesign for the Google Play Web Store, first announced by Googler Chris Yerga at Google I/O 2013. The new design is welcomed, bringing a layout on-par with the Google Play update on Android that became available in April.

Google Play visitors on the web will find a convenient sidebar, enabling them to switch through sections much easier. Most prominently, Apps, Movies and TV, Music, Books, Magazines, and Devices are shown. Clicking on a category will give you a slew of content that can be purchased, and of course, the Devices section presents all of the Android devices Google has a hand in designing.

As for apps, information about them is clearer. Screenshots are much larger and general information about the app takes up the whole page, including a description, reviews, similar apps, and more from the specific developer.

Droid-Life was the first to show-off the redesign earlier this summer, but it is now available for all simply by visiting the Google Play website. You can take a glance at our gallery for an overview.
