Google brings Offers tab in Play Store: What it means for users

Google is adding an ‘Offers’ tab to the Play Store app. Under the tab, users will be able to see offers on apps, games that are on sale and offers on ebooks. In addition, the tab will show deals on movie purchases as well.
The feature was first introduced in November last year. It was then available for users who have subscribed to the Play Pass and is now rolling out to more Android phone users.
The app usually has four tabs at the bottom bar. With the addition of the ‘Offers’ tab, it grows to five. The new ‘Offers’ tab is placed alongside other tabs- Games, Apps, Movies and Books.

Under the tab, each game and app gets a carousel of cover images that are bigger than usual. The deal and its date of expiration along with other app information can also be found under the tab.
Meanwhile, the tech giant recently added a new, more prominent way for Android users to check updates for the Play Store. As per a report by 9to5Google, the feature is available under Play Store > Settings > About. When a user scrolls down to the bottom display in About section, he/she will see the “Update Play Store” button in green text.
The current method offered by Google to check for updates is tapping on the Store’s version number. However, it is not very intuitive and most users aren’t aware it existed. The new button makes the way to check for Google Play Store updates more prominent and visually easier.
