The Google Play store is in for a big redesign, with new homes for Apps & Games and Entertainment. The two categories will now exist under their own respective tabs on the Play home screen.

Google software engineer Kirill Grouchnikov, who works on the team at Android, shared images of the upcoming redesign to his Google+ profile Thursday. The update looks substantial enough to warrant a full dot bump to Google Play 6.0. It will also introduce RTL support (support for languages written in right-to-left).

Kirill did not offer a date for the rollout, but it’s likely to be pretty soon. For now, check out all the images he shared below:
