Google has announced a new redesigned version of the Play Store app for Android, which is compatible with Android v2.2 and above.
The new Play Store app is faster, simpler and comes with much cleaner interface and it definitely makes sense for Google to make the app more user friendly, as that’s the only app which every Android user uses to browse and download various Android apps.
The previous version was 3.10.14 while the new one is 4.0.25. This redesigned version will be available to all users in the coming days, but the impatient ones can download and install the updated version right now.
To download the updated version, simply get the APK file. Once you’ve downloaded it to your device, simply launch the APK file and install it as you would do with any other app. But before doing this, ensure that from settings, you have enabled apps to be installed from unknown sources.
Note that this update will overwrite your existing Play Store app. It seems that the only issue as of now is that if you’re living outside U.S., then you won’t be able to see the featured content section. Once Google starts rolling out the update to other countries, you would be able to see all the sections.
The APK file is signed by Google which means that the signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way, by anyone. So go ahead, instead of waiting for Google to push the update, get the APK file right now from the below link.
