Today Google announced a redesigned Play store app for Android users running Android 2.2 and above.

The redesign will begin showing up for users over the coming weeks, but if you're the type who doesn't like to wait, you can download and install the update yourself.

We knew it would only be a matter of time before the update was posted for all to enjoy, and thanks to Droid Life, you're a few seconds away from looking at the new Play store on your Android device.

Head on over to this post and follow one of the download links to grab the APK for the redesigned store. Once you've downloaded it to your device you can install it just as you would any other app. Make sure you've enabled apps to be  installed from unknown sources  if you run into any trouble.

The update will install right over your current Play store app, giving you the redesigned look. I was able to download and install the update on my Nexus 4 without issue. Let us know in the comments what you think about the new store once you get it installed.
