K1 - Anyone get the new Google Play Store Update yet?

2012-03-08, 23:57 PM

The Android Market has been replaced with the Google Play Store.  My K1 has yet to update to it.  Still shows the Android Market.  My other Google Apps (Books & Music) have updated to Google Play Books & Google Play Music.  But still no update to the Google Play Store & the new icon.

 

Anyone else out there get it yet?

 

 K1 version 3.2.1.  Kernel: 2.6.36.3.  Build: K1_A301_14_14_120109_US.

No, I'm guessing it has to do with Lenovo.

I tried this, but it didn't work.

Guess those of us who have Lenovo products, will just have to be patient and wait!

I got it.  Market app icon is the same.  I rented one movie and the application fails everytime I try and play.  I reported it multiple times to Google.

If you don't have the new Icon for the Google Play Store, then you probably haven't updated.  The icon will change from Market to Google Play.

 

Here is some additional information, but none of these have worked for me.  It appears Google is pushing this update rather slowly ...

Google PLay store pushed to my device on Thursday, works great. Agreed seems to be coming slow to devices, I just got the update on my android phone this afternoon, and still waiting on 1 more device.

It appears that the only difference is the name. Everything else looks the same.

 

03/10 - On my A1, it is working perfectly. Was an automatic update. The icon is still old Market because I use GO Launcher ICS, and they haven't updated yet. Prior to theme application, it is the new Play icon.

I got the update on my Transformer Prime a few days ago. I tried on the Lenovo K1 to force the update by installing the .apk. Bottom line is I had it working for a bit but then it started the force close. It has absolutly nothing to do with google. It's a Lenovo issue again.

If you go there with a browser - https://play.google.com/store - it may work better.
