Google Play Store design changes

If you don’t know, Google like to test out new layouts with different sets of users, while all being on the same app version. How do they do this? They tweak some stuff on their servers. What has changed? After the reports of the Play Store and Google Now being broken, I checked out my Google Pixel, thankfully nothing was broken, but I thought I had something different. I checked in with my co-writers, and @mitchelldcherry actually showed me what was on his Galaxy S8, and it was different. The images are below.

As you can see, the Google Pixel has a new card layout. I really prefer this layout as it gives the icons more space and same with the text, and the sections are a lot more clearer. What this also does, is that this allows background for a section to be changed, as shown below
