google play store: Google brings this minor but important update to the mobile app listing on Play Store


Google will now specify the Android operating system which is required to install an app. The information will be available in Google Play Store listing under the ‘App info’ section. At present, users can find details like app version, updated on, downloads, offered by, released on, and app permissions under the section.
As spotted by 9to5Google, it will not show the Android OS that is needed to run the app on the user’s device. The information will be available with the version 29.2.13 of the Google Play Store.

The information is already available on Google Play Store for the web. While it reads ‘Varies with device’ on the web, mobile listing is more specific.
Recently, Google added a new feature for Android devices. Smartphones and tablets running on Android OS will now instantly add app icons on the home screen. The icons will also show the progress of new app installs.
After a user taps on the ‘Install’ button in the Google Play Store, he/she will see a black-and-white version of the app on the homescreen. The icon will be added instantly to the home screen. It will also have a progress ring and a ‘Downloading’ label. Once the downloading phase is completed, the label will change to ‘Installing’. In case you are downloading more than one app at a time, you will see app(s) with the “Pending…” label.
