Fully Revamped “My Apps & Games” Google Play Section Seems to be Rolling Out Widely

google play update

I’m not sure I can even recall when exactly this new Google Play Store “My apps & games” made its first appearance, but it feels like it has been popping up for months. Either way, Google must be ready to give it to everyone, as we’ve had a number of readers point out today that they are now seeing it. I’m also seeing it on my Moto G5 Plus.

What’s new? You can see it, can’t you? Look at that new “Updates” tab, those “UPDATE” boxes, along with the update count, font size change, extra bits of info, option to sort your apps, and less bloated, card-tastic layout. 

With this new layout, you can quickly update apps from a dedicated panel either individually without having to go into their app pages or still “Update all.” You can also see when an app was updated last and how big the app file is, open them from new “Open” boxes, and easily install old apps from your “Library” (formerly “All”). These might seem like pretty small changes, but they are soooo welcomed.

 

Everyone seeing this new layout on their devices?

NOTE: If you kill your Google Play store or wipe its cache or even just back all of the way out, it should reload with the new setup.

Cheers Mark, Bryce, and everyone else!

    It showed up on my Samsung A5 2017 several days ago but after that whenever I started the Google Play Store app and showed “My apps & games” there it slowed the whole user interface of my phone down so much that it was unresponsive for several seconds. I did not expect that a single application can block the UI in Android 6 for several seconds completely 🙁

    After clearing the app’s cache and forcing it to stop everything seems to work normally again.

    I have two accounts on the play store. One account shows the new updated version while the other account shows the old version…weird

  • BryceAlmighty

    My lifelong dream of being in the ‘Cheers’ section of DL has now been achieved.

  • TC Infantino

    Nothing on my Moto Z Force, then rebooted, and now new and improved Play Store

  • Larry Simpson

    I have on my 6P. I’m not impressed, I’d rather have the old layout back

  • Justin

    I just cleared the cache and it showed up

    • SpiderDice

      Can confirm. Nexus 5X, 7.1.2

        Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

      Thanks for the tip. I keep wondering why my Nexus 6P has a new layout while my other one has the old layout. Clearing cache did work.

  • Rob Hoffmann

    Force stop + restart = New Look!!! on my Cricket Alcatel Idol.

    How very App Store it looks…

  • Sporttster

    Has anyone noticed that when updating apps, at times it appears you’re updating what was already updated? I just did this a couple days ago and was reading the ‘what’s new’ and noticed on a few apps the same thing that it said LAST time I updated. This isn’t the first time this has happened either. It seems to happen quite often. I’m like wait a second….didn’t I just update this a week ago? Why is it showing up again? It’s almost as if the update didn’t take the first time so here’s round 2. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this before…

    • Robert Willis

      Happens to me all the time. I have no idea why.

    • terrorist96

      Or the developer didn’t bother to update the what’s new section.

    • Whoakhonga!

      Yes. I noticed that also.

    • Kennymarkail

      Happens to me so much that I just ignore it now. Mainly the apps by Google never provide an accurate changelog

  • imhowie

    Yay?

    Slow news day I guess.

  • MutantGenesis

    Moto G5 Plus in the hizzouse!!!!!

  • yummy

    I haf a little something on my Pixel, but a coworker saw it, and wiped it off. That could have been awkward.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Got it on my 6P yesterday.

    Got it on my Nexus 5 but the green went back to the original muted Android green.

  • snoop doge

    just cleared cache, data and forced close, and it suddenly appeared

  • Shubham Goel

    No from india

  • shamatuu

    yep i see it

  • needa

    OPO on lineage. nope.

  • Smallville123

    No, because google is so damn slow with their roll outs it’s ridiculous. Why can’t they just push new features to everyone at once???

    • They originally did that and there was chaos, pitch forks, burning of villages so they fell back to this approach so if there is a revolt they can easily put it down.

  • trixnkix637

    Nothing on my VZW Pixel XL on the 7.1.2 stable update.

  • Crwys

    Nothing on my S6 Edge but oddly enough on my Fire HD 8 tablet 2016, rooted with Google Play installed.

    • Nerdy

  • Ricky Giordano
