Google has promised us various Play Store improvements and that is exactly what we have just received. The version 4.8.19 has started rolling out to devices, not to mention that Google Play Store 4.8.20 is also available for download for all those of you who don’t like waiting, but before taking any action, we bet that you are more than curious to discover what’s new.
What is Google Play Store 4.8.20 bringing?
As Google has promised us, we can finally be talking about app billing support along with a new payment fulfilment option with the help of Paypal integration. We have waited a long time for that to happen, but we are glad that the Paypal Support is finally here making things even easier than before for all using Paypal services.
As you will immediately notice, the scale of buttons has been tweaked in this Google Play Store 4.8.20 version which practically means that buttons are not only much larger, but also easier to operate with.
Simplified Permission Lists
Starting with this new version, when you’re installing an app, the permission list is divided into categories like location, WiFi, and camera/microphone. All you have to do is to tap one of them to see the expanded permissions. And at the bottom of this section you can also find a permissions link that pops up an overlay with all the permissions which saves you from all that trouble of having to install an app just to see the permissions.
Additional Information section
You can find a new Additional Information section at the bottom of app listings in the Play Store including the most recent app version, installed size, content rating, as well as a link for permissions.
Moreover, we are also talking about new header images and action bar area in the video/book sections. We can tell you from the start that the action bar fades in as you slide down and we really like this neat effect, not to mention that the search button in the action bar has switched places with share.
Google Play Books and Movies & TV
So, we are also talking about differences in the Google Play Books and the Movies & TV sections where you would be able to notice the changes in the pricing section.
Yes, that is a very generous list of enhancements and major changes, as you have seen above and we know that Google is cooking up even more surprises for us: a new Babble Unified Messaging tool seems to be on the way, not to mention that a new OS (Key Lime Pie Android 5.0) will be soon released along with the most recent variant of Nexus smartphone dubbed as Nexus 5.
Google Play Store 4.8.20 is one hundred percent safe to install
As for those of you having doubts, we can assure you that the APK is signed by Google, so there is no danger when it comes to installing it. The cryptographic signature is the guarantee that we all need in order to be sure that the file is one hundred percent safe to install, so don’t hesitate to do that as soon as possible.
So, rather than waiting for Google to push this download to your Android devices, which can take a few days or even more, download the Google Play Store 4.8.20 file directly from here and install it just like any other APK.
