Play Newsstand and Play Movies & TV apps get interface tweaks


Google rolled out some app updates on Wednesday, and while Keep was the star of the show Play Newsstand and Play Movies & TV also saw some interface tweaks.

All the news that's fit to display

First up is Newsstand, which is updating to version 3.2.0 featuring category headings at the top of the screen in the Read Now section, as first spotted by Android Central.

So instead of scrolling down to the various sections such as highlights, business, entertainment, and sports, these broad categories appear at the top of the screen right under the Read Now heading.

The slide-out navigation bar is also getting a minor tweak compressing the "My News" and "My Magazines" sections into a new "My Library" category.

If you don't see version 3.2 in Google Play just yet, it should be heading to your device soon.

Play Movies & TV

Getting some very minor tweaks, Google Play Movies & TV is moving to version 3.1.22 that moves the "Settings," "Help," and "Send feedback" sections to the slideout navigation bar on the left. Help and send feedback have also been combined into a singular option.

You can also switch between multiple Google accounts within the app and the video player lets you fast forward and rewind in 10-second increments with the swipe of a finger, Android Central says.

Like Newsstand, the new version of Play Movies & TV is rolling out now and may not be available for all users just yet.
