    Download: Latest Google Play Store v3.8.16
    by ARTEM RUSSAKOVSKII | AUG. 18, 2012


    A new Google Play Store update has just started rolling out to Android devices. The new version updates 3.7.15 from the end of July, and so far outside of a minor cosmetic change, I wasn't able to pin down just what exactly is new. Something definitely is, because the apk is 300KB larger than the three previous 3.7.XX ones. Here are some historical sizes:


    com.android.vending-3.5.19.apk 3.81MB
    com.android.vending-3.7.11.apk 5.07MB
    com.android.vending-3.7.13.apk 5.07MB
    com.android.vending-3.7.15.apk 5.07MB
    com.android.vending-3.8.15.apk 5.35MB
    com.android.vending-3.8.16.apk 5.35MB
    As you can see, each time the Play Store was updated to the next 3.X, there was a considerable jump in file size (as well as functionality).


    The cosmetic change I was talking about is nothing more than simple underlining of tabs. It's possible there are more sizable changes in non-app parts of the Play Store, but I haven't found them just yet. If you do, definitely let us know!

    Downloaded last night. A tad sluggish compared to the previous version, even a few stalls. I can't find anything new either. ;)
