by: David GonzalesMay 15, 2013

If you think you’ve seen the last of Google’s Play Store updates today as part of Google I/O, think again. After introducing Google Play Game Services, Google has now launched a much-needed redesign to the Play Store for avid shoppers who happen to use Android-powered tablets.

One of Google’s numerous Play Store updates today involves adding a dedicated tablet section for users of Android-powered tablets who wish to find out the top ranking free and paid apps available on the Google Play Store. If you check out the Play Store, you’ll see that Google has already made the necessary changes.

Also part of today’s Google Play Store update is the introduction of the recent Play Store mobile redesign to its Web-based counterpart, allowing users to get more out of the Play Store by putting all of the extra screen real estate to good use — a sidebar to toggle between media types is now available alongside the regular Google Play Store setup.

As mentioned above, the changes have already been made by Google, and you’ll be able to see them for yourself by navigating to For more on Google I/O this year, check out our live blog or follow all of latest stories here.
