Google's Play Developer Console appeared for the first time earlier this year at Google I/O, where the search giant demoed a new version.

The new eco-system is focusing on how one may publish Android applications in Google's store. Although the latest version of the Developer Console is still a work in progress, Google wants more feedback on the new features and layout.

Up until now, Google tested the console with a tremendous number of developers and made lots of improvements and adjustments in order to offer the perfect tool for publishing apps.

“At its core, the Developer Console is how you put your app in front of hundreds of millions of Android users around the world, and track how your app is doing. We hope that with a streamlined publishing flow, new language options, and new user ratings statistics, you’ll have better tools for delivering great Android apps that delight users.”

The latest version of Developer Console brings a new interface, which is crisper and more easier to navigate. It also loads much faster even when users have lots of apps.

Google added the ability to track user ratings over time, which allows devs to see various statistics about their user ratings.

Furthermore, the search giant completely overhauled the publishing flow and added the option to list an app in no less than 49 languages.

As soon as a new change is added to an application in the latest version of Developer Console, users will be provided with the option to view an automatic translation of the listing on the web.

Some advanced features are not yet available in this version of Google Play Developer Console, such as: multiple APK support, APK Expansion Files and announcements.

Those who wish to take advantage of any of the features mentioned earlier will have to switch back to an older iteration. The new version of Google Play Developer Console is available here.
