Google Play Store adds section letting you know what your friends are downloading Google has added a new section to its Play Store, "People," which shows off what your friends and other users are downloading.
The move comes just days after the search giant added an activity feed to the mobile app,

In the activity feed, you can see your recent reviews, ratings and of course purchases. The People section will show off what friends have recently downloaded or reviewed.

Google says the People feed will be closely tied to Google+, allowing for easier following on the social network and their full profiles.

If you are running Android, you most likely have the feed now.
