At Google I/O 2012 event on June 27th, the Mountain View-based company have unveiled some of the features of the highly-anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Beam. The new Android update will first arrive on Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and Motorola Xoom terminals, but the owners of other Android-powered device are already drooling thinking of Google’s new mobile OS.
Among other interesting features, Android 4.1 Jelly also introduces a new Google Play Store version and, fortunately, the APK file is now available for download.
For the time being, many of the new features of Google Play Store are not available for the users outside North America. I am talking about the new Play Magazines and TV services announced and launched during Google I/O event.
If you are reading this from outside US, installing the new Play Store 3.7.11 version will only bring some design improvements for you. Courtesy of a member of XDA Developers community, the APK file that brings the new version is now available for download. The file was testes and it works just fine on most of the Android-powered terminals.
As I mentioned above, besides the new Play Magazines and TV services the main attraction is the new user interface. The elements that were occupying precious space (like reflections and unused rows) have been removed. The transitions are smoother, it comes with new animations and other characteristics for a new experience.
Google Play Store 3.7.11 app doesn’t require a special installation procedure. All you have to do is copy the .apk file on your device and install the app by taping on the file. You can download the Google Play Store 3.7.11 APK file for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean here.
