A little over a week ago, Google started pushing out a new version of the Google Play Store. That was 4.3.10 which had a rather big bug in there that plagued quite a few of us. That was the fact that downloading and updating apps would give us a “package file invalid” error. Just yesterday, Google said that they are working on a fix for this error and would have an update out as soon as they found the problem. Well less than 24 hours later we have a new update out.
This one is 4.3.11, so don’t expect a whole lot of new features compared to the older version. Android Police is reporting that they don’t believe it fixes the Package File Invalid error and that it could be more of a server issue anyways. As usual, the Android Police Team has torn down the new apk and found a few new features. They’ve updated the plural translations for many locales including: bg, es-rUS, fr, id, in, ja, ko, ms, pt, pt-rPT, ro, ru, sk, sl, th, tl, tr, vi, zh-rCN. There are some minor changes to SearchAdapter and PlayTabContainer as well. And that’s about it for what’s new in this version of Google Play.
This new version of Google Play is the same size as the previous version, sitting at 5.75MB in size. Of course we have the apk for download down below. It’s available on both Google Drive and Dropbox, so you can choose your host of choice. When you download the apk, you’ll want to make sure that the Unknown Sources in Settings – Security is checked. Then you can install it over your existing Play Store. It’s just that easy.
If any of you find any other changes in this new version of the Play Store, or find that the “Package File Invalid” error is gone, be sure to let us know in the comments down below. Also if you have any issues updating to this new version let us know.
