Beginning to appear is the Google Play Store revamp for Wear OS {U: Rolled back}

The Google Play Store system update from September foreshadowed the beginning of the Wear OS Play Store’s new layout.

Update 9/14: This makeover has recently vanished for the majority of users who initially received it, indicating that Google is not yet ready to distribute it. Some Wear OS users do still have the redesign, though.

Going back does highlight how basic the original design is. However, updating apps takes less scrolling now.

Original 9/4: This makeover was first displayed during Samsung’s Unpacked event last month with the introduction of the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro. The search button is now contained in a pill rather than a circle.

The See More button is followed by an option to explore all with three app suggestions. You receive the name, icon, and rating of the application. Large cards for Watch faces, Music streaming, Essential watch apps, and Healthy mind and body are placed after Recommended for you and Now trending.

In the final stage, you are given the option to access the Play Store on one of your other devices, namely your phone, and explore and download apps from there. The page is completed with Manage applications and Settings. It’s sad that the former is still so hidden from view while looking for app updates.

The present design, in comparison, is dull and heavily text-based. Directly promoting apps on the front page may persuade users to download more content for their wearables and increase developer interest. It’s the most recent indication that wearable design has converged around presenting the majority of content in one view rather than requiring users to navigate through many menus.

On Google Play for Wear OS version 31.2.10-26, the current report of this revamp is now live. The upgrade is being rolled out through a server-side update, so most users are currently not seeing it broadly.

Google is likewise in the process of launching:
Users’ mobile devices will automatically install the necessary companion app when they install a Wear OS app that calls for one.
