As usual, Android Police has gone ahead and torn apart the new APK to see what’s new in this release. And there are a few new changes. The most obvious addition is the Recently Updated section. So instead of all your apps being in alphabetical order, it’s now sorted by recently updated. Which is nice to see. Especially for those of us that have a bunch of Apps installed. I know I have about 60 installed on my Nexus 4. That list gets pretty long pretty quick.
They’ve also changed the update notifications, to make them combined. As you can see in the screenshot above, the 3 updated apps are now in one notification instead of three separate ones. That’s definitely something I like to see. There’s also new episode notifications. You also get “Play” and “Download” options for the new episode, which is definitely useful.
Some other minor tweaks include the buy and rent buttons in Google Play Movies & TV switching. Additionally the Wallet logo is now gone when you purchase items from the Play Store. Which could mean the end of Google Wallet? Which we’ve kinda been guessing at lately since Google Wallet isn’t compatible with the new Nexus 7. Android Police is also reporting that the Play Store will now offer to install Google Play Games when you’re installing a game. It may not be live quite yet, but the code is there for this to happen. Which isn’t a bad idea by Google.
Like we said already, the update is about 5.75MB in size. Yes we also have download links down below. One is on Copy, the other is on Google Drive. If either of the sites go down, or no longer work, be sure to leave a comment down below and we’ll do our best to upload it somewhere else for you.
