Don’t look now… well, OK maybe you can look now, but a new version of the Play Store might have been pushed over to your device. This isn’t some minor bug-fixing affair, either — Google’s added a big new feature that could make it easier to discover apps your friends recommend.
An all new “People” section has crept into the sidebar menu, and it serves to show you everything your Google+ peeps share within the Play Store. Whether they’ve talked about a favorite app, book, movie or album, you’ll see all their latest recommendations.
The new section will also show you what your friends rated those apps, so you can easily see if it’s worth a quick download or if they were condemning it to the dark pits of the netherworld. It’s up to you to discover why they’ve been buzzing about it, so be sure to check it out on your phone by heading to the Play Store (you may need to clear cache and / or data for it to begin showing up).
