Without a doubt it was an update that many expected to receive since the previous version was a little easier to handle.
The visual changes are immediately apparent when you turn on the app, and focus on a new tab for Devices and Groups located at the bottom right of the screen. Now, directly from the new tab of the application you’ll be able to see all of your different devices, and enabled groups to Alexa on a single screen, instead of switching between tabs as before.

It seems that the intention is to simplify the search with visual cues, so that you can more easily find the device you need.
