How soon changelogs will return to the Play Store on the web is still up in the air
The Google Play Store is a window into a vast world of millions of apps for your favorite Android phone. But you’ll often find that Google introduces more bugs to the Play Store than it fixes — it missed app update notifications some time ago, and it’s now disappearing app changelogs. But it seems Google had no intention of removing app changelogs from the Play Store for the web, and a fix may be just around the corner.
Last week we learned that the Play Store on the web no longer displays app changelogs. It was not an isolated problem as many users reported the same glitch, which we were able to confirm on our end as well. This happened even though the Play Store mobile app had no issues displaying app changelogs.
Android Police founder Artem Russakovskii contacted the Play Store support team to complain about the issue. Not only did they acknowledge the disappearing changelog issue, but they also confirmed that it was indeed a bug and not something Google intended to do, like last time it removed the “last updated” section from the app store.
Google is working on a solution to restore app changelogs on the web, but how long it will take is up in the air. But since the company is already aware of the issue, we hope that it will proactively fix the changelog issue in no time for the users who rely on the Play Store web interface to track app updates and changes .
In other news, Google has added a more convenient way for your kids to send purchase requests, even if you don’t have a payment method shared with your family group. When you receive a request from your child, you can easily authorize the purchase with the card associated with your own account, without giving your children access to your card.
