We all knew it’d come quick. The latest Google Play APK 3.7.11, is available for you to download and try on your favorite android device.
Google yesterday pushed the latest update of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the new Galaxy Nexus devices that were handed for free to all Google IO 2012 attendees, so it was only obvious that the latest version of Google Play – extracted from the Android 4.1 builds on those nexus devices, that is – will leak soon enough on the lovely place we call Internet. And here it is, the Google Play Store 3.7.11, up from the last version 3.5.19, ready for you all to download and use on your android phones and tablets.
Google Play 3.7.11 might (not confirmed yet) bring the latest tech regarding partial app updates to the Play Store that Google promised at the I/O yesterday, which would allow the apps in the android market/play store to be updated only by downloading the parts of the app that need to be replaced, added or removed, thus reducing the update size significantly making it no longer necessary to download the whole app – or a game – when it needs just some parts (the bugs, you know) to be fixed, or new levels added in case of games.
We’re still digging for more changes in the Google Play 3.7.11 since it does seems little bit big update from 3.5.19, but for now let’s just download it right away. Btw, Google would be updating automatically all the Play Store apps on all eligible android devices – Android 2.2 and up, we guess – but no time frame is available as of yet regarding when Google will start and finish updating the Google Play app, we think a few weeks time is a decent guess to live with. If you hate the wait game, simply download the Google Play 3.7.11 from below and install it using a file manager, or if you need help check out the installation guide below.
