Google is on the spree of releasing new version of apps on its Android. The latest in line is the Play Store itself, though we’re not sure whether this will come to you before or after the Material Design update released for YouTube for Android.

Googler Krill Grouchnikov announced the new update, version 5.1 of Google Play Store, on his personal Google+ account. He wrote that Google Play Store 5.1 will be releasing for all Android devices whether it’s running Lollipop or the previous versions.

The new version of Google Play store features a My Account tab which lets you easily buy credit by adding credit cards to your account or linking it with your PayPal account. This page will also list all of your past purchases on Google Play, including hardware devices that you may have purchased from Google Play. This will act as a history tab to see basically everything that you’ve paid for on Google Play.

In addition to that, a number of other changes in the user interface has been introduced in Google Play store 5.1. If you’re on Android 5.0 Lollipop, you’ll notice real-time card shadows. And regardless of which version of Android you are on, when the update is available on your device, you’ll either be prompted to install or or it will be automatically updated in the background if such is the settings for automatic update.

Let us know what you think about Google Play store 5.1 once it hits your device and you’ve had some time with it.
