A revamped interface of Google Play’s My Apps section is now rolling out to Android users. The new interface, which was first spotted, provides users with better-organized categories and more utility than before. It will potentially help clear space on your Android device, and it allows you to sort the apps which you have installed. Earlier, Google Image Search was launched with ‘Style Ideas’ feature.
The My Apps & Games part of the Google Play, which lets users manage apps that are associated with their Google account, has now received a makeover with the latest update. Notably, with the upgrade, users get the ability to organize the list of installed apps according to various factors including Alphabetical, Last Updated, Last Used, and Size. While the arrangement according to alphabets and size makes sense, the most useful additions are the other two. Users will now be able to quickly figure out the apps that have not been updated for a while as well as the apps that have not been used for some time.
With this, users can quickly free up space on their devices by uninstalling the apps that they hardly use. The user interface has now been updated to add a dedicated tab for updates and removes the Subscriptions tab. You might notice that the size of icons in the list has now been decreased, to allow users to see more items than before in a single glance and thereby manage the apps efficiently.

With the new update, the All tab has now been renamed to ‘Library’ and just like before, shows you the list of all the apps installed on the devices which have been synced with your Google account.
Google started to roll out the update, but notably, not all the users can see it just yet. The Google Play app’s version number doesn’t seem to be the differentiating factor either. However, the update is likely expected to show up for everyone over the next few days. Android Police has pointed out that clearing Google Play Store’s app data might help some users get the update. We found that after clearing the app data, restarting the device does assist in ensuring the visibility of the overhauled interface.
However, the Google Play revamp has also brought along one change that might not sit well with many users. Now, users cannot install apps from their library in batches and need to install apps that they need individually. Often Google’s mobile platform has been accused of making things more complicated while iOS is usually seen as a much-organized platform but it seems like these sort of minor changes can ease up some of the issues that users face while handling their Android devices.
