Play Store Gets Revamped: Here is What’s New


Google Play Store has received a slick revamp with its latest update to the Android’s official app store as the ‘My apps & games’ section receives new features which adds to the user experience while updating, installing and sorting apps by relevance as per usage.

The redesign of the ‘My apps & games’ section now allows users to easily install/update an app without the need to open an individual app’s window — which was how it previously worked unless you updated all the apps at once by selecting ‘Update all’.

Users can also see what all apps were previously installed on their current device or any previous device being used with the same google ID and re-install them directly from the list menu.

In addition to both these features, you can also sort apps in order of size, last date used, last updated and in alphabetical order. This will help you get rid of any app that you don’t use anymore or that is hogging into your internal storage and update relevant apps too.

All these features makes it easier for users to take control of the apps on their device that they have installed recently or a long time back.

It’s recommended to do away with any app or game that you don’t use anymore and the Play Store now helps you figure out which apps are of little relevance to you.

The new update provides relevant information like last date used, size of the app and if there is any update available on the app list page, which allows users to save time which was previously consumed shifting screens from one app to the other.

The update provides a quicker way for users to update their apps, know when the app was last updated, install previously used apps, learn about the basic information of the app, update size as well as the total size of the app if it’s up to date.

The new features look awesome and are surely going to add to the user experience while using the Play Store but there seem to be some bugs in the update as the ‘update all’ feature isn’t working as smoothly and faces error while updating few apps, which have to be manually update from inside the app window on the Play Store.
