New “People” Section Shows Up in Google Play

We may earn a commission when you click links to retailers and purchase goods. More info.

If you are still running version 4.6.17 of Google Play on your phone or tablet (and you are because it’s the newest), swipe out the navigation menu and see if you notice anything new. See it? That would be the new “People” section that just went live.

In the section, we are seeing recommendations based on people we follow through Google+, like +1s and reviews. Google is also using this to highlight featured content and recommend others that you should follow. You can even tap on individuals that you already follow to see what kinds of shared activity they have made available. 

The new “People” section seems to be controlled server side, as no update has hit our devices. I should point out that I’m seeing the new section on my Nexus 5, but not my One (M8).

Anyone else seeing this?
