Google is pushing out an update to the Play Store for Android with version 3.10.14. The difference in size compared to the previous version 3.10.10 from a bit over 2 months ago is about 14KB, and after ripping through the APK, I found no significant changes. There are some tweaks to the billing code, but from what I can tell, this is a bug fix release.

If you spot any changes compared to 3.10.10, please drop a note in the comments.

Download

The APK, uploaded by XDA member ecs1984, is signed by Google and upgrades your existing Play Store. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the apk was not tampered with in any way and is therefore safe to install. Use this download if you'd rather have the latest version rather than having to wait for Google to randomly push it to your device. Download and install it just like any other APK.

Thanks, Jason and Bobby!

    So, has anyone spotted anything different?

    • quiro91

      I think the post installation screen has a slightly different layout

    • HomerSp

      They seem to have added an option to opt-out of entering your password when you buy something.

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

        Where can I find this option? I don't see it under settings.

        • HomerSp

          I can't reproduce it now, but sometimes when you buy something you have to enter your password as a sort of CAPTCHA to verify the purchase. They have added a checkbox to that dialog so you don't have to enter it again.

          Mind you this is just by looking at the code, as I can't get the dialog to show now.

    I hope Google unveils a Play Store redesign at Google I/O. It really needs a redesign.

    • Isomorphic Algorithm

      What I want to see is more filters. Sort by date added, price high to low/ low to high, there needs to be more ways to discover new apps.

    • Floris

      Yeah, and add a filter for tablet optimized apps. I know this is more difficult to do than on iOS, but they can search the apps that use Fragments or something. I mean, they're Google, so they should know how to search..

      • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

        Fragments are used all over the place in non-tablet apps. In fact, the one and only thing that uniquely identifies an app as having definite tablet support would be a separate layout file designated for X-Large displays (7" and above). Even that isn't really a sure thing if the app uses code to construct or modify the display. I've seen a couple (admittedly, very few) layouts that were creatively designed to make good use of the space in all sizes ranging from a 4" screen up to a 10" screen with the same layout and no special coding. This is just one of the things that makes Android better, but at a steep cost. :)

    • Stylus_XL

      Abso-freaking-lutely. Useful features for the most part but too cluttered and laggy.

    • Jack Roberts

      I Hope So Too I Was Hoping That They Were Going To Redesign It At IO 2012.

    • patapongirl

      Honestly, I just want a separate tab for purchased app. The design is pretty decent to me.

      • Joseph Cascio

        Yes! For f**ks sake add a way to see apps that I actually paid money for.

    • primalxconvoy

      Being able to search for genuinely new apps and games night actually entice me back to regulary checking the marketplace. Even the awful psn store trumps Google over this. Oh, and stop the pointless region blocking. Otherwise, the pirates win and the kitten population sees another loss via the baby Jesus' fair, bloodstained little hands...

  • Marc R.

    No significant changes? So again it's not possible to filter out my already paid apps that I currently don't have installed but I still have to search them between all the other apps I have installed some other time :(

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

      Correct.

      • Marc R.

        damn.
        I still wonder why Google has removed the most useful feature from the Play Store app...

        • Max Barlow

          Just to clarify... Being able to download thousands of apps and games isn't the most useful feature of the store?

          • Marc R.

            Well it is :)
            But after you have had installed thousands of applications then you can't find your already paid applications anymore. I'd rather have that back than a list of all the apps I have ever installed...

          • Max Barlow

            Haha I understood your point, just felt like being pedantic. I do agree however... It always annoys me after I flash my phone and it asks to restore all these apps I don't want anymore

    • SenseOffender

      I just updated and saw no change here, you scroll right and you have all "hostorical" apps, and left you have all currently installed apps; under "my apps".

    • Mikken

      Yes, already waiting for it. There's to rent chairs that something as basic as this is left out by Google. I think that they have a big redesign coming.

    • ChumbleSpuzz

      For this I use the Legacy Play Store. Both can be loaded at the same time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/OssamaTarek Ossama Tarek

    Will take it down soon as well?

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

      What?

      • Justin Winker

        Gonna guess he's asking for a teardown... But it's so small, I dont' see a real reason to.

  • RitishOemraw

    Small update? Too bad, was really looking forward to a Market APK teardown....the market is bound to have juicy stuff if anything.

  • http://twitter.com/andr3wjacks0n andrew jackson

    I wish after deleting the apps you don't want anymore on the "My Apps" list it would remember your position so you didn't have to scroll back down from the beginning. I have a shit ton of apps that I have installed over the years.

    • anoma_dotNET

      IIRC you can now detach apps from your account so if there's a bunch of crappy apps you installed for 2 minutes and never will again, detach them to shorten your list a bit.

    • BrianLipp

      if you tap and hold on an app in that list you can then select a bunch of apps and then hit the delete button in the upper right and it will get rid of all of them at once so you dont need to delete one at a time and keep scrolling back down

  • Simon Belmont

    I think I'll just let this one update "naturally." Haha.

    14KB isn't that much. Thanks for the heads up though.

  • http://robert.aitchison.org raitchison

    IMO the updating of GAPPS packages used with custom ROMS should be triggered by Play Store (Market) updates, and additionally those packages should only include the Play Store app, required frameworks & libraries for Google authentication services and the few apps that are not available through Play Store. It always seems pointless to install GMail and Maps as part of a GAPPS package if the first you do after booting into your ROM is update those from Play Store since the versions included in the GAPPS is months out of date.

  • jakuxes

    I think this is just about enabling subscriptions with the new billing API. It didn't support it before: http://developer.android.com/google/play/billing/versions.html

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      I think you meant to include this link instead: http://developer.android.com/google/play/billing/billing_subscriptions.html

      From Google (copied here since this notice will probably disappear in a couple of weeks)

      15 February 2013

      In-app Billing V3 now supports subscriptions and you can get started developing today. A small app update is currently being rolled out to Android devices. This process is automatic and most devices will get the update in the next few days. However, if you wish to get the update today to start developing right away, simply reboot your device.

      However, we recommend that you do not publish an app with V3 subscriptions until all Android devices have received the update. We'll notify you here that all devices have received the update and its safe to publish your apps that use V3 subscriptions.

    I found a new thing if you open the Google Play Store and the LoadingCircle comes it has now Colors the Circle ^^ sorry for my bad English Germany :D

  • Sean Stone

    I know I saw it posted about before, but the more detailed progress information in the notification bar didn't show up for me until I installed this version, I was on 3.10.10 before.

    • Kurt

      I read through the 80+ previous comments to see if anyone had noticed that. The more detailed information comes when updating an app. Shows percent and estimated time to finish

  • eak128

    Lost the books and movies tabs after the update.

  • IronBlood

    Interesting change i noticed is that there is a change to buying apps... It asks for your password like it's been doing for the post couple of updates except now there's a don't ask again check box just under the password... It pops up a message saying disabling password can cause unwanted charges your responsible

    I want to install the free Sugar Sync on my Dell Inspiron tablet. I just created a Google account. I have never used Google Play Store, but am told I must have it first. This is a "zoo" compared to the Apple Store or iTunes simplicity. The messy page that comes up for downloading the Play Store looks like a fraud.
