Sharing is caring!

If you’ve not updated your Google Play Store app, it’s time you do so. Version 6.0.5 addresses issues that previously plagued and has a smoother performance. It also offers two new sections Apps & Games and Entertainment. The file has 14.45MB and may be downloaded with various third-party sources like APKMirror.

This is a mandatory install since it provides some changes – not huge, but necessary since the company is fixing bugs and applying patches for noted security problems. The update ensures the app is much more reliable and loads faster.  There are no more app crashes or force closings, which were seen in the 6.0.0 version. Google developers have addressed those issues.

For the new section Entertainment, you can get movies, music and books. In Apps & Games, you can look for games and other apps you have an interest in playing or using. Instead of searching the entire Google Play Store, you can look specifically in this section for them.

The app will eventually have a Family Library feature, with the option to add NFC cards and send gifts, allowing you to pay payment within the Play Store. No word on when it’ll be offered, but it’s thought that January 2017 is the earliest date.
