Take a look at the Google Play Store's new UI for individual apps
The Google Play Store is about to receive an updated UI, and a look at the new version of the store (Version 7.1.15)  quickly reveals some of the changes that are coming. Right away, you'll notice that the "Install" box is much wider and now runs horizontally across much of the screen. We assume that the current size of the box presents an issue to those with big chunky fingers or to users with poor eyesight.

Additional changes include the removal of the box under the name of the developer. This box listed the appropriate age category for the app. Also removed is the badge that links this app to similar titles, and one that lists  the category this app belongs to. The new UI still shows the average stars received by the app by users, along with an approximate number of downloads. While these stats are no longer posted inside a badge, they remain displayed under the "Install" bar. Other changes include larger screenshots of the app, and a new position for the Read More link that expands the description of the app.

The new UI was found on a Nexus 6P running on Android 7.1.1. Check out the new Google Play Store UI and the current one by clicking on the slide show below.

Apart from the larger Screenshots, it looks worse.

So ugly! The install button is way too long!
