Like any other application, the Google Play Store receives different updates from time to time, some with more notable changes and others with smaller ones that usually go unnoticed. In this case, we have to talk about the latest update released by Google at the end of last October of this year, since with this update we could see a certain change when using our Android devices.
To be precise, those from Mountain View released a series of updates for the Play Store on October 30th. Among its most notable changes, we can mention that now you can automatically configure any watch face you have downloaded on your portable devices. Furthermore, you can now also see warning messages on the app details page in the Google Play Store, which helps us identify which apps are more likely to fail.
Users now have more control over the use of the Google Play Store
Another of the most interesting additions is that, in the case of having an app downloaded from outside the Google Play Store, you can now keep it updated from the Android app store itself. As you can see, there are several notable changes, and these are not the only ones, but they are the most prominent. In fact, regarding the update about watch faces, it’s worth mentioning that Google had been implementing changes and improvements in its Wear OS system and user interface for some time. Remember that you can now seamlessly connect any wearable from one phone to another.
It has also been mentioned that Google is working on various improvements to the mobile user interface. For example, there’s talk of the Google Play Store Cubes feature, one that has been dormant since its inception but seems to be making progress and could be very useful for us to see much more tailored recommendations in the Play Store based on our personal interests in the future. However, as we mentioned, this would be a matter for the future, and it is not part of this most recent update for now.
Many of the novelties mentioned in this post are very interesting and can have a significant impact on our daily use, but we will see in the coming weeks how they work and what effects they have.
