With the release of the new Nexus 7, Android 4.3 was unveiled. Previously we saw that the Google Play Games came pre-installed on the new Nexus 7. Another thing that was visible in the new Nexus 7, was that the Google Play Store was updated to the latest 4.2.9 version.
Only last week, Google Play Store version 4.2.3 was leaked from the system dumps of the Nexus 4. Play Store version 4.2.3 was related to the new functionality for restricting user access to Google Play. This gave an idea that restricted accounts would be coming on the latest Android 4.3.
And just after a week of the previous update of the Google Play Store, another update has arrived – Google Play Store 4.2.9. Google Play Store 4.2.9 seems to be a minor update, with several new image assets, a few new strings, and supposedly some minimal UI changes to the widgets.
As stated before, this version is just a minor update of the previous release so not many changes will be visible.
The Google Play Store 4.2.9 APK is available. It is signed by Google and upgrades your existing Play Store. It means that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Google may take some time to push it through for various devices. Instead, download the APK and install it using any file manager.
