The Play Store is, of course, a core Google app. While this time there's no version change, in the last 24 hours, a new server-side change to the app has begun to roll out, this time affecting the Accounts screen and how it is organized, making it clearer which setting belongs to which section.

The change segregates the different options into four categories: Payment methods, Subscriptions, Rewards, and Order history. Formerly, these were all in one large top-level category encompassing everything to do with your account, but Google has obviously seen fit to change this and make it a little easier to work out what is being looked at. Another small, but still notable change is how Google has decided to present these options: gone are the cards of old, with the different account settings now displayed in a simple list fashion.

Left: before. Right: after.

This server-side change is slowly rolling out to everybody; some Android Police team members have the new style on one device but the old on another. Because this is server-side, it does not matter what version of the Play Store a device has installed, but if you want to download the latest Play Store APK, it's available at APK Mirror.
