By Prarthito

Good News for all you Android users out there. According to reports, Google has pushed out a new major update for its Play Store app on Android. The update bumps the app version to 4.6.16 and offers a slew of new features alongside some minor UI changes.

Apart from other changes made to the store, Google's latest update to the Play Store has added a new "Require password" settings option, alongside a more impressive in-app purchase reminder when any app is downloaded.

Google Play Store Updated: Now Offering UI Change, Batch Install


Previously, users could either set the feature to ask every time about the password or never. But with the new update, users can now set timer for 30 minutes, and this means that Google won't ask for a password approval in the next 30 minutes after having purchased an app once. The feature is also quite similar to Apple's App Store.

Another important feature that the new update brings is the capability to batch install apps from the app history. This new feature is going to be useful when using a new device and installing all the apps you previously had, on it.

In order to batch install, users will need to head over to All tab in My Apps section and then select the apps and begin marking them to be batch installed. Moreover, users will no longer be directed to the top of the list after removing an app from the list.
