Google Play is rolling out a new flow to manage your apps

That's going to be the second change that Google Play made for the app management section this year. Currently, it is gradually rolling out to all users but it still may take some time until you will have a chance to give it a try.
There are some good news and some bad news. The bad - now you will have to perform more clicks for some operations that you got used to.

The good - apps browser became much faster and now you won't see it freezing on your high-end flagship. For now 😜

Another thing that you may notice - the beta tab disappeared and now you won't be able to access it anymore. But in any case, it was never working properly so it is likely will have zero impact on your user experience.

The "Update All" option is still available but only on the Overview screen.

How to manually update apps after the new Google Play update:

  • Open the "Manage apps & device" section.
  • Tap on the Manage tab.
  • Tap on the Updates available filter.
  • Select apps that you want to get updated.
  • Tap on the update icon on the top right, next to the delete icon.

Tester Context:

  • 📲 Google Play is an official application store for Android by Google.
  • 📲 Google Play app doesn't have a standalone listing on Google Play itself.
  • 📲 Google Play Services app is a library that is used by the Google Play app internally. It is available in beta, but lots of new features are rolling out in waves to a limited amount of users.
Google Play services - Apps on Google Play
Google Play services - Google services for Android apps
