Last Updated: October 13th, 2013

The latest version of the Play Store is no longer 3.7.11 - say hello to v3.7.13. I haven't found anything different from 3.7.11 just yet - it likely only contains bug fixes. There's no reason to lag behind, however, so if you're running a Play Store with a version lower than 3.7.13, jump right to the download mirrors below. Before you do that, let me point out a few things.

Upon playing with the Store further, I did discover a new feature compared to v3.5.19 that I didn't mention last time - inline app links in search suggestions. Take a look at searching in 3.5.19 (on the left) and 3.7.13 (on the right) - direct app links are now mixed in with suggested spellings. A subtle change, but if I can save a few clicks here and there and get to results faster, why not?

Another new feature in 3.7.* is the addition of applications' privacy policy links. You can read more about that here.

If you missed the 3.7.11 post, I'll mention this feature again as well - you can now set your preferred sharing method (long-press on the new field to the right of the share dropdown). I set mine to Gmail so that I can quickly share new apps with the team. Neat.

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 with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take weeks, download and install it just like any other APK and enjoy the new Play Store experience.

    Thanks for posting the new Google Play Store APK! :)

    LInk 5 is the best one.

    Do you guys scan these for viruses or otherwise check to see if they've been monkied with?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      It's impossible for the Play Store update to install over your current one if it's been modified in any way. Thanks, cryptology!

      But yeah, I installed it and verified it's legit by doing so.

    • Alex Luckett

      It wouldn't install over the top of the current Play Store it it had been.

  • XopherTaylor

    Should I not see TV shows or magazines in Canada?

    • A. Noid

       No you shouldn't. Just stick to drinking Molson.

      • XopherTaylor

        Just because I'm Canadian doesn't mean I have to drink crap beer. It does, however, mean that I have to wait for significant content offerings.

            How to openmy app store?

  • Kevin Wu

    Those mirror links are HORRIBLE, finally got one by random that worked, almost downloaded some crap/spyware...

    I'm assuming that if we didn't side-load it, most of us would still be on pre-JB Play stores; I'm a huge Android fan, but this is why Apple fan boys are laughing at us...

    Why couldn't we have Download it from the official Android site?

    • mduran1023

      Agreed that the mirror sites are pretty horrible, though there's nothing that requires you to use then to get an updated play store.

      As I understand, Google pushes these updates out in waves/batches, and your phone gets updated automatically. You just need to be a little patient.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        I welcome mirror ideas that aren't as crappy and preferably offer direct link support. And are reliable and won't disappear like MegaUpload. Or restrict countries like other sites.

        • Abhisshek Das

          SugarSync is pretty good for  mirroring

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            I want something permanent - if I ever delete it or run out of space, the mirror shouldn't depend on that. Same reason why we won't do Dropbox (plus, traffic limits).

          • http://twitter.com/SoWhy SoWhy

            Why not Google Drive? A numer of ROM devs host their files there lately and it seems to work fine

        • Abhisshek Das

          than the only solution is  the paid hosting . like where your blog is hosted use that hosting space as a mirror ( though that is technically not mirroring ) or Google Compute Engine / AWS

    • Jon Garrett

      you could., you just wanted it now rather than waiting for the official release.

    • boogerfacelovessnot

      it won't even let me download he mirror app so i agree they are HORRIBLE

  • Loren Cogar

    Every update is a complete fail until I can sort by my purchased apps.

    • Comfortbetrays

      +1 I still can't understand why google would remove that feature and has yet to add it back in.

    • Jon Garrett

       I want to delete apps I no longer want and devices I no longer have. AND Id like a copy of the .apk to be downloaded to my PC when I install an app.

    Is this like " only for jelly bean " ported to ics like the 3.7.11 version or is it for all the devices ?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      There's nothing to port - it works on all devices (at least on Gbread and up anyway).

  • kln0thing

    +! for swiftkey - woohoo! :)

    question: is titanium backup able to detach the apps from this market version? i'm still using a modded 3.4.7 because of that
