Google Play Store new icon crop

The Google Play Store continues evolving, but it isn’t often that we see significant changes or improvements. Today the Play Store get s a brand new feature many of you will probably enjoy – a ‘Trending’ section.

This area is under the entertainment tab, which is the one that reads “Movies, Music, Books”. It is located right under the New Movie Releases. The word “Trending” is big and bold, so you won’t be missing it.

As you can expect, said section showcases hot topics regarding musicians, movies and more. One of the current featured trending topics is Bruno Mars, for example. Tap on it to display a page full of news, videos, links to other content, an author description and more.

It will definitely help keep users up-to-date on the latest entertainment trends, and it is a simple addition that won’t really get in the way of those who might not be prone to use it.

What we can say is we are seeing changes in the design department here. These Trending pages look sleek and very dynamic, making us hope these aesthetic changes will also come to the other areas of the Google Play Store.

What do you guys think? Is this Trending section something you will be taking advantage of, or is it just more noise?
