Google Play Store gets small update with new UI and mysterious new syncing options
For a while, there were rumors that Google would be releasing a newsstand or News section of the Google Play Store, but those rumors have died away and been replaced with the mysterious new Google Play Games, which is not only said to be part of the big keynote at I/O tomorrow, but it is decidedly the first time the "Google Play" moniker actually makes perfect sense. The name has always been a bit hit (Play Movies/Music) or miss (Play Books/Magazines). 

Google Play Store gets small update with new UI and mysterious new syncing options
Well, on the eve of what is expected to be a pretty interesting Google I/O, Google has pushed a small update to the Google Play Store. On the surface, there isn't much of a difference to the new version (4.1.6). As far as UI differences, all that is new is that the section banners have gotten a redesign to be full color, rather than white with each section's color as accents; the "open", "install", and "uninstall" buttons on each app page have been respaced; and, wishlists have been redesigned to show items in rows of three.

But, underneath the hood, Google Play Services has new syncing options for "App Data" and "People Details". It's unclear what each is for exactly, but it is assumed that they are base services for Play Games, which has been said to offer game save syncing as well as friends and leaderboard tracking.

I don't like all the SW and Nexus 4 evidence cause one thing is yet to materialize, FHD Nexus 7 scores or pictures. I can wait a little longer but will be disappointed if not even a little mention of the thang.

What I really want in a Google Play Store update is Podcast support - let me subscribe to podcasts from the Store and then I can listen to them in Google Play Music.

I have a entry level smart phone...doesn't have much memory on it. With all of the pre-installed apps that are there, Google Play services pushes my phone into almost full capacity. When I begin the download to install Google play services, it tells me it's 6.51 mb--which my phone has plenty of room for, HOWEVER, when it actually installs, it's almost 14mb, which loads my phone WAY up. I can't get any of the pre-installed apps off, so is google going to offer a smaller package for people like me?? I would love to get that annoying alert off my phone for good and install it, but I can't keep it on there while it mysteriously grows into a LARGE file...any ideas?
