Update [October 15, 2016]: The latest Play Store available for download now is version 7.1.12. Grab the APK from below.
Update [October 11, 2016]: Okay, an even newer version of the Play Store is available to grace your Android device. It’s dubbed as 7.1.11, it comes as upgrade to 7.0.18.
Update [October 09, 2016]: Earlier today, the system images of the Google Pixel and Pixel Xl leaked out on the web, digging which brought us a new play store version, although not the latest actually. We’re looking at the Play Store APK version 6.9.39, while we already have the 7.0.18 out for 4 days now in real world.
The Play Store v6.9.39 is a tad different BTW, as its full version is package: 6.9.39.G-all , compared to that of 7.0.18, which is, 7.0.18.H-all . Clearly, the G here represents Google phone, which the Pixel sets are, to which this Play Store APK belongs.
So, is it a simple case of an old unreleased version being used for Pixel sets by Google on Android 7.1, or WILL there be a different Play Store for Google devices compared to mortal Android sets?
Update [October 05, 2016]: A new, rather small-ish, update is available for the Google Play Store for download, dubbed as version 7.0.18. Of course, we’re yet to dig in deep to find what’s new and changed, but frankly, we don’t expect much as new and changed with this one!
Okay, maybe this new version 7.0.18 has to do something with the new and long rumored streaming feature that’s about to come to action to Play Store soon. The feature was under testing for last few days, so maybe the feedback Google received required some fixes on the 7.0.17 update. But you know, we’ll just update our play store and see if get the paid apps and games available for stream just yet. (Update: It isn’t, just yet.)
Google promised a lot of goodies for the its Indian users recently, including powering its Chrome for Android browser to download even the videos and music, apart from pictures and saving webpages. Company is also planning a new Play Store feature where Indian users will save on data as the app will download all kind-of static sections of the store on Wi-Fi and when users surfs the app on mobile data, it will not downloaded those static kind of stuff again to save on data.
Today, Google released a new version of the Play Store, which comes as version 7.0.17. This is the latest version and we are yet to see if those changes for Indian users have already made the cut.
