Server-side updates are common for the Google Play Store, and another is currently on its way to users. For some, the Google Play Store is making it much easier to check for updates.
This new option, which can be found under Play Store > Settings > About, simply expands on existing functionality.
For some users, an “Update Play Store” button appears beneath the Play Store, allowing them to quickly and easily check for an upgrade to the app marketplace.
Before this change, the Play Store did provide a method for checking for updates to its app, but it wasn’t particularly user-friendly. Because there was no clear indication of this functionality, most users were unaware it existed.
Tapping on the Store’s version number would trigger a check for updates available to the app, but because there was no clear indication of this functionality, most users were unaware it existed.
The new button makes checking for Google Play Store updates more visible and visually appealing.
According to the report, the new method is currently available only to Google Pixel 6 Pro users.
It is expected to be made available to other Android smartphones in the future. The feature is also said to be compatible with handsets running the Android 10 operating system.
