Loot boxes have come under scrutiny even outside of Google, as the Federal Trade Commission and Missouri Senator John Hawley are launching respective attempts to investigate and potentially ban them - the FTC will host a public workshop in November 2019 to see if loot boxes violate consumer protections and Hawley's reportedly problematic bill aims to outlaw pay-to-win and gambling adjacent monetization in all games marketed to children under 18. Google's move will at least push these to the sidelines and not eliminate them completely while the Play Store itself becomes more family oriented. When you restart you can enjoy the new Play Store.
Almost everything has been redesigned, including the download buttons and the progress bars, and there's also a new font used everywhere across the Google Play Store. The new interface is present in version 15.1.24, now being rolled out.
If you're not yet seeing the new design, make sure you have version 15.1.24 of the app or download it from APKMirror. For example, if the app user accesses the app on any open Android device such as at a restaurant or mall - the developer must ensure that the app has a "neutral age screen" and creates an experience that complies with the rules. The first run could take a little bit longer than usual, but then you should be able to see the new UI. Of course, careful supervision is still a must, as Google can't promise inappropriate or adult-targeted apps will simply disappear in a matter of months. The manual workaround here comes in handy for users who don't want to wait anymore and doesn't really present any risks of breaking down the Store or anything else.
