Google Play Store update 5.1.11 adds a My Account page with full order history
Google loves to push lots of smaller updates to the Play Store app. It seems like there it rarely more than a couple weeks without at least a minor update to the Play Store. Not too long ago, there was a major update, which brought new features and the Material design changes. Now, that design is getting refined, and the app is finally getting a proper My Account page.

That is the big new feature in the update is a My Account page. The My Account page will offer a few options including, adding new debit or credit cards, redeeming gift cards, buying more Google Play credit, or adding PayPal info. The page also includes a full order history, so you can easily track purchases. 

There are also some visual tweaks in the update as well. The previous versions had the notification bar change color to match each Play Store section, and now that will also happen with your account image that shows in the slide out menu. Additionally, Android 5.0 users will get real-time shadow rendering for cards. 

The update has just started rolling out, so it could take as long as two weeks for you to get it. There's the sideload APK at the AP source, if you're so inclined though.

Wow another one for the list: I had no idea android didn't have this? iOS had this exact thing for years: our App Store showed downloaded apps from day one, I can stil scroll down today and see the first app I ever downloaded (if it's still available), with the recent added: wish list about a year or two ago. Now apps with IAP show get instead of free makes it easy to decide. Another one for the list....

The Play Store has had the list of download apps for ages Its in the All tab on the My apps page (the one on the right) The new My account is mainly for other purchases, e.g. music, movies (but also shows purchased apps and I think purchased IAPs) Before you had to use the browser to see that stuff Also free apps on the Play Store say install instead of free and has had the wishlist for quite a while now as well But the Play Store is lacking family sharing which the AppStore has

The article only says that the My account is new Basically New -> My accounts (has list of all purchases, e.g. apps, IAPs, Music, Movies, eBooks,...) Not new -> My apps (list of all free and paid apps ever installed, but you can remove apps from here if you want)

That's how we felt when widgets and multi-tasking was introduced on iOS. P.S.: That list wasn't only available on phones. You could still view your history of purchases in desktop mode of Playstore in browser.
