Google Play Store changes make getting rid of unused apps easy

google-play-store-update

Google has begun rolling out a new update for its Play Store which allows users to ditch unused apps with minimal fuss.

The ‘My Apps and Games’ section of the store has had a revamp, with a new ‘Installed’ menu, which can be filtered to show when apps were last used.

Handily, this means you can delete old apps in a single location. Think: airline apps you downloaded so you could download a boarding pass.

Or a game that got loads of buzz but turned out to be second rate and take up oodles of storage.

Google has also changed the way app updates work.

It now allows Android users to push their apps to the latest version from a single menu, rather than having to delve into every app’s Play Store page in order to get hold of the latest version.

The Play Store changes do not require a software upgrade, although reports suggest you may need to restart your device in order to see the changes.
