The Play Store app for Android has been updated to a new version 5.4 which brought changes to the design of the app rather than to the features of the app.
The notification bar of the device, which used to sport a green color, now merges itself by shedding the color and becomes transparent. This was the case with the search bar previously, which also became transparent with an earlier update (v5.2).
You could update the app by the notification Google pushes to your device, and if your region still hasn’t received the update, you could download the app from APK Mirror, the link of which has been shared by Android Police, and is posted below.
