Google Trips will now prefer saved places when putting together a day plan

Google Trips is one of the lesser-used Google apps - it was only released in April - but that's not to say it's not incredibly useful.

A new update, 0.0.42, for Trips has arrived on Google Play, adding some neat new functionality for even better ways to plan your trips.

Play Store search results revamped for some users, with new info card for top result

It might be time to name this month "Play Store Month." In just November alone, a new trending section, a revamped UI, Netbanking support for India, and various tweaks to installing applications have all made appearances for some users. The latest change is to the Play Store's search results, which have the ironic reputation of being terrible - despite Google having a world-famous search engine.

Right now Google is testing a new Trending section, a new app interface, Netbanking for Indian users, and other minor tweaks in the Play Store. Maybe one day Google will only test one new feature at once, but that day is not today.
