Google wants to free users from unnecessary worries and what it calls “anxiety about recent updates”. In that sense, it will reformulate its Google Play Store application with significant changes for the Android store.
The research giant prefers that users dedicate their time to more important things and, for that, it can change its app a lot, more specifically the list of apps installed on Android and the respective presentation of recent updates.
There is a new and peculiar update for the Google Play Store
Google is continually working to bring new features and test different approaches to its products. Among these we highlight now the Play Store which, after a server-side update, is radically changing its appearance.
As published on the Reddit platform, Google made this implementation come first to its Pixel. However, the same presentation is now gradually reaching more Android smartphone manufacturers around the world.
Next, we can see what appears to be the new implementation of Google. In practice, the “My games and apps” menu or section will no longer display the extensive list of applications installed on the phone and their availability for updates.
This is the new design on the way for Android users
The technology wants to reduce anxiety caused by recurring updates of Android apps. Thus, so that the user is not always accessing the “My apps and games” section, the company will radically change its appearance.
Instead of having a list of all the apps installed on Android and their availability of updates, we will have a single button. This new “Check for update” implementation, or checking for updates in a direct translation, will simplify the Play Store.
All the user will have to do is click on the new “Check for updates” button, for the Play Store to perform a quick search. Then, if there are new versions of the applications installed on the device, they will be installed automatically.
The goal is to simplify the list of apps and manage updates
The screenshot above shows us a new section “App and Device Management”, in a direct translation. There, the full list of installed apps will no longer appear, but we will have other controls that are more succinct and less detailed.
The elements will follow this order:
- Google Play Protect information with Play Store security scans
- Update information – number of updates available, date of the last installed apps and the latest news check.
- Remaining internal memory space indicator – visual indication of internal memory occupation
- Right access button to the application sharing and reception menu by “Share Apps”
- Direct access to the application reviews section – feedback page on the Google Play Store.
These changes are present in the version 25.1.24-21 of the Google Play Store app, being distributed by the company itself. Thus, we will have to wait for this update to be made available by the North American technology.
It should be noted that this version started to be made available very recently, but now enjoys greater dissemination. Over the next few days and / or weeks it is likely that it will also arrive in UK and all elected Android devices.
In short, it will be a new ordering and presentation for one of the most important functions and menus in the Play Store. With most users having more than 100 apps installed easily, it’s easy to lose track of app updates.
Finally, we emphasize that it is crucial to keep the phone’s applications up to date, whether to receive the new functions and ensure their safety.
