Android Market 3.3.11 begins rolling out. Can’t wait? Get it here now!

Gmail isn’t the only one that’s got a new look. Android’s app store, the Android Market, has finally gotten its long-overdue make-over too with a few new treats to boot.

The new look is just one of the several new treats in the latest version of the Market app, Android Market 3.3.11.

Here are the other features this fresh Android Market app has to offer as reported by Android Police:

  • New setting: Auto-update apps (presumably, sets all apps to auto-update mode, woohoo!)
  • New setting: Update over Wi-Fi only
  • New setting: Auto-add shortcuts (automatically adds homescreen shortcuts for new apps, a la Honeycomb)
  • Smaller font
  • New app drawer icon
  • Microphone (voice command) button in search menu
  • Star rating chart on app pages
  • Minor UI tweaks

It’s slowly being pushed out by Google right as we speak. Personally, I’d rather just wait for the update to hit my HTC Sensation, but if you’re not as patient as I  am, you can download the APK of Android Market 3.3.11 here (or here) and install it manually on your ‘droid.

Just a warning, this apparently doesn’t work well with Honeycomb tablets.

And in case the Market app starts force closing, it’s recommended you clear the data of the Market app (Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Market > Clear Data) to resolve this issue.

Good luck, and once you’re done, don’t forget to share with us your take on this new version of the Android Market app.
