With the last few builds delivered over the last 6 weeks, Google has released a number of new changes to the user interface. While some of them were liked by users, others like the nested tabs - not so much. We will be looking to see what's new in this latest version of Google Play Store. But, even if there are no visual changes, it is still recommended to keep your Play Store up to date to benefit from all the security and performance fixes and improvements.
Google also introduced a new bug bounty program last week to make sure some of the most popular apps hosted on the platform remain secure.
While it is recommended to wait for the official updates instead of installing APK files from the web, if you are comfortable with the process, here is the link to the latest version, weighing in at over 12.06 MB.
You can download the Google Play Store APK like any other APK and continue to receive official updates from the company like you did before this installation.
As mentioned, it is highly recommended to keep your Play Store updated to the latest version to be sure that you are taking advantage of all the new changes, bug fixes, and framework improvements - not to forget fixes to the rampant security problems.
