The Google Play Store is getting some extra polish and convenience to Android TV.

If you have a Nexus Player you can expect an update to version 5.4.12, which now lets you update all your installed apps and games at once.

There’s a handy “Update all” button inside the Android TV version of the Google Play Store.

Additionally, the app listings in the Play Store now have larger tiles, which gives the interface a much cleaner look, and makes it easy to read from across the room.

You no longer need to update apps one-at-a-time.

Your device should update to the newest version of the Play Store automatically. Otherwise, you can grab it now from APK Mirror.

Why this matters: The Google Play Store is the hub for content on Android TV just as it is on Android phones and tablets. The smoother the experiences, the more TV shows, movies, apps, and games Google hopes you’ll download.
