Google Play Store 4.4.21 available for download [Update: official rollout begins]

Google Play Store 4.4.21

After having been discovered a few days ago, the new Google Play Store Android app update (version 4.4.21) is available for download, bringing a new user interface to Android devices.

The new UI replaces the old navigation with a slide-out navigation menu that’s meant to make it easier for users to discover and manage Google Play Store content on smartphones and tablets.

The APK measures just 5.84MB and is already available for download (check out the Source link below) and manual install, but Google is also expected to push the download to your devices in the coming weeks.

Android Police notes that the APK “is signed by Google and upgrades your existing Play Store. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered in any way.”

In addition to the new UI, other changes have not been observed. Last week’s report also said that the Google Play Store app will get a “more drastic card-heavy UI,” but that hasn’t happened just yet.

Update (10/25): While many of us side-loaded the app earlier this week, the new update has now begun rolling out for those that chose to wait for whatever reason. As is typical of Google, the rollout is staged so it make take a few days to reach all users.

    Hmmm. Too many what ifs. Click this link, no click this one. I’ll wait since I don’t feel that I’m dying without the update.

      Step 1: Click on link next to “Source:”

      Step 2: Click giant bold headline for the download.
      Step 3: Clap your hands 3 times, turn 180 degrees and then go about your day.

    How can you change between Google accounts? It used to be in the settings but now do you have to go into the settings of your own device?

    Recently I was extremely low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – emds
