The all-new redesigned and improved Google Play Store version 4.0 for Android that we've been seeing leaks of the past few weeks is finally official. This morning Google confirmed the new design themselves, and now we have what you all want. And that is the new Play Store available for download. Check out what's new below, then hit the download link.

We first saw the redesigned Google Play Store about 2 weeks ago in a leaked file and a few screenshots, but since then they've polished everything up and we're excited to be getting a brand new Play Store design. This is the first major overhaul since July of last year along with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so a change was just about due.

As we detailed earlier today the all-new Play Store 4.0 is all about a focusing on a simplistic and elegant design. Everything is cleaner, crisp, and polished. Google's focused on bigger images everywhere, card style layouts similar to Google Now, and of course recommendations. It's all about grouping similar content and suggestions together. All at a faster speed than ever before.

The update is for Android 2.2 and above devices and should arrive over the next few weeks. However, we have the file available for you below in all its glory. The process is fairly simple. Just download the latest version linked to below and install right over the previous Play Store. That's it! Then enjoy this elegant new design and let us know what you think. We'll update when we find what's new.

    I like the organization of Google Play Store. Note this is happening at the time Facebook HTC is coming out,and other devices this month. Competition is a good thing.

    Wow. I think the new design is fantastic. I’m not sure how I feel about the organization of it, but I’ll get used to it that’s for sure.
