Along with the flurry of announcements from earlier this afternoon, Google updated the Play Store to feature a couple of new controls to manage your long list of apps. Google introduced the ability to install apps from the desktop in 2011 when the Android Market was kicking, but now users can update and uninstall their apps from the Play Store. Nifty, right? The new feature is only available for third-party apps, not carrier and OEM specific apps, which makes sense. The feature is available on the My Apps page, where you will find an update button and trashcan for deleting apps. Google also pushed Chrome for Android out of beta this afternoon. It is available on the Play Store for Android 4.0 devices or later. Do you like what Google showed off today? Check out the other announcements. (via TechCrunch)
