If you like using the Google Play Store in order to download games and apps, then we have some amazing news for you. The Android parent has just released a brand-new update for the Google Play Store which changes its build number to 13.9.17. The update arrived today (March 7th) in the form of APK and it is not being rolled out OTA (over the air). Therefore, all Android fans who are interested in the new update need to manually download and install it on their smartphones.
The first thing that we want to cover about the new update is how to install it. For those who are unfamiliar with APK updates, all they need to know is that this update format stands for “Android Package Kit”. This means that the new update can only be installed on Android powered smartphones. However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise since this is the Google Play Store we are talking about after all.
The update can be found on Google’s official APK website and everyone who wants to install it on their smartphone needs to head over to the “Settings” panel and then enable the “Unknown Sources” option. This option makes Android smartphones compatible with APK updates.
