Google begins updating Play Store

Google has begun rolling out an update to the Play Store.  The new version (3.9.16) has some rather useful updates that many people have had on their wish list for a while.

If you download lots of apps then you are aware of just how frustrating it is when you select an app and upon returning to the list you are taken back to the top.  Well, be frustrated no more, the update brings the much needed functionality of returning you to exactly the place in the list that you left!


The second update brings the ability to remove the apps that you no longer want from the My Apps list.  This option goes hand in hand with the option to multi-select apps and remove more than one at once.

More changes come in the way of the notification bar, any recently installed app now shows the icon in the bar and the notification is expandable.

The updated play store will of course roll out to your Android device in due course but if you can’t wait Android Police have made the updated apk available for dowload.
