It seems like only yesterday that the Android Market was rebranded as Google Play, but in reality it was a good 12 months ago now. Times flies, and all that.
A video leak of Google Play 4.0 has been sprung, and in some ways it looks more reminiscent of the old Android Market than the Google Play we’ve grown to know and, er, use.
Google Play 4.0 has been leaked by the dudes at Droid-Life, who’ve posted a meaty, 6-minute video preview.
The Google Play 4.0 UI appears to be more streamlined, with less clutter, bigger images, and sexier text.
It’s not clear when Google Play 4.0 will be released to the wider public. Indeed, at the moment, there are still lots of blank/inactive pages.
There are some suggestions that Google might wait till its annual I/O event in May before launching Play 4.0, which would give Mountain View a good month-and-a-bit to iron out the various creases.
Speaking of Google I/O, it’s shaping up to be a pretty big dealio, with Key Lime Pie and the Motorola X-Phone both tipped to debut. Google Play 4.0 could be the icing on the proverbial Android cake.
