Updated app offers more security for Google play store

2014-03-21  |  Comebuy News

Google has started updating its play store app. The new version of 4.6.16 offers including more security for purchases. A password query is now possible with each purchase. In-app purchases are clearly marked and displayed in the app permissions.

The distribution of the new app has already begun. It is for all smartphones and tablets with Android 2.2 or higher available. However, it can take a few days until it reaches all users around the world. Alternatively, you can also manually install the application. For the installation the option must be in the device settings under Security in the device management section "unknown origin? be activated."

In addition, Google has simplified the operation. When performing a search, for example, the results list remains now, if you peel back after selecting a search result. Listed under "My apps" can applications, provided that they are not yet available on the device on the device, install automatically at once. For this, you tagged the apps to install. This is particularly useful if previously used apps should be transferred to a new device.

On the surface, there are some changes: the menu in the sidebar was supplemented with the entries settings, help, and imprint. In the settings, even the previous option is called "automatically add widgets? that ensures that the corresponding icon on the home screen is placed after installing an app, now "icon to Launcher Add.? What better describes the mechanism."
