I have a Galaxy S4 and went to download an app and my Google Play app is gone. Not only missing from the screen but I checked Steeings-Apps-All and it's not there. I've used it in the past but don't know when it went away.

Any thoughts?

My S4 has numerous standalone Google Play apps: Play Music, Play Books, etc.

Mine does too, there was one that was called Google Play and that was sort of the launching point. I could access all of those from the one app.

I just found it odd that it's gone now.
