Google, the search engine behemoth, plans to update the Play Store’s tablet and foldable user interface by the year 2023. Some upcoming changes to the Google Play Store for tablets, foldables, and Chromebooks have been described. The company claims that the new version is built on a content-forward approach, which will provide a more accurate representation of the app in the store and aid customers in making informed installation decisions.
The company just released one (low-resolution) graphic detailing the 2023 improvements coming to the Play Store for tablets and foldables. If this were implemented, it would be a huge improvement over the present version of the Play Store for tablets, which appears to have borrowed heavily from the design of the smartphone version.
The next upgrade will modernise the tablet version of the Google Play Store by integrating screenshots, videos, and descriptions into the Apps and Games Home section. According to Google, the updates will only affect the app’s visibility in the Play Store and will not affect its discoverability.

In terms of accessibility, the Pixel Tablet’s arrival in the first quarter of next year will coincide with the rollout of the Play Store’s updated offerings for high-resolution displays.
