Google Play Store device client has been updated by Google, it has started rolling out the update that will bring some changes and obviously some improvements that include mass install support and another major option of always asking password for in app purchase.

You all must know that Google was sued recently by a mother when her kid made an in-app purchase that worth $65 in one game! Yea I am not kidding. Google was sued by a mom, after which Google added the Always ask password for purchases so that those type of thing won’t happen again. More likely this also will help in accidentally buying the app and another big update is that, you can now select multiple app by going to My Apps < All section and install them all at once but you have to accept app permission individually.
