Everyone who owns an Android powered smartphone knows just how important the Play Store is and therefore, no one should be shocked to find out that Google’s developers are constantly releasing updates for the service. For those who are not familiar with the Play Store, this is the platform where all the Android apps, services and games can be found. Nonetheless, a brand-new update has been released for the Play Store and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.
Google Play Store Update
Right from the start, the first thing that we need to mention is that this update is available in the form of APK. The update changes Play Store’s build number into “12.9.12” and since it’s an APK, all Android fans who want to get it need to do it manually, but more on that later. Now, let’s see what the update contains.
Android fans should be pleased to know that the new APK is a maintenance update. The reason why we are saying that is because the update introduces a bunch of bug fixes that improve the stability of the service. With that being said, all Android fans should make sure to get the new APK because it’s going to significantly improve the stability of all their apps, services and games.
Android Package Kit
As previously mentioned, APK updates need to be manually downloaded and installed. This is the case with all APK updates and it gives Android fans a chance to get their hands on the new update ahead of everyone else. However, Android fans who don’t want to install the update themselves can simply wait a couple of weeks because Google is eventually going to roll it OTA (over the air).
