Ask any Android fan what is the best feature that their smartphone has to offer and they will more than likely answer with the Google Play Store. This is a vital feature of the Android ecosystem and Google is making sure that it’s always running at peak performance levels by constantly releasing updates for it. However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise since Google is renowned for always improving its operating system and apps with weekly updates.
Google Play Store Update
Nonetheless, the reason why we are talking about the Google Play Store today is because the feature has just received a new update. Right from the start, we need to mention that this is not a major update and it doesn’t come with any groundbreaking features. Although, this was to be expected since the Google Play Store is already packed with a plethora of features and the only thing that it needs in order to get better are software improvements and bug fixes.
Android users should be pleased to know that the latest update for the Google Play Store which sports the 13.1.32 build number is available on Google’s official website APK right now and that it focuses on improving the feature’s overall system stability by adding bug fixes.
Android Package Kit
As we previously mentioned, this update can currently be downloaded in the form of APK. This means that interested Android users who want to get the update need to do it manually. The biggest difference between APK updates and normal ones is that APKs are not being rolled out OTA (over the air). This is why Android users need to get it themselves. On the bright side of things, installing APK updates is super easy and everyone can do it after enabling the “Unknown Sources” feature from their Settings panel.
