Android Market version?

 My TPT, which I purchased last December, is running version 1.0.28 of Android Market.  But it looks like Market is actually up to a version in the 3 series at this point.  I can't find a way to force an upgrade to the most recent version of Market.  Is there a way to do so?

Re: Android Market version?

Hi, download this new version of the Market appwhich has beenrebranded Google Play. It should replace the old one. http://hotfile.com/dl/149080043/c8d34ef/com.android.vending.apk.html ...

Re: Android Market version?

My Market version is still 1.0.28. According to google ( http://support.google.com/googleplay/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=190860 ), the TPT is supported and we should automatically get updated to Google Paly.

 

Is everyone else out there still on the same, old version?

Thank you. It's upgraded, and now in portrait on my dock!

Re: Android Market version?

Does Lenovo have any advice on this? I don't understand why isn't the update being pushed from their servers.

 

And if we update with that link, do you know if the Google Play app will auto-update thereafter?

It appears that Lenovo has linked some "system" apps such as Docs to Go etc. for update only with their OTAs. I recall this seemed to be the case originally with Netflix but they have since released it for direct Google update. I suspect that "Market" is currently also "fixed". This strategy makes sense for custom apps, especially tablet versions until the market-version is similarly updated and compatible.

 

If you manually update, I expect the next OTA to overwrite it anyway and it will be up to Lenovo to then allow it to update via Google.

 

Just my guess...

 

PS
Play Store has a smaller 2x2 widget also...
