The Google Play Store puts millions of apps and games at the disposal of Android fans and this is why the Google Play Store is often considered as the most important component of the Android operating system. From the looks of it, Google seems to believe this as well because the Android parent is constantly rolling out software updates that introduce improvements and bug fixes to the Google Play Store. Therefore, today we are going to take a closer look at the latest update for the Google Play Store which has arrived earlier this week.
Google Play Store Update
Google is renowned for constantly pushing out software updates to its native Android apps and the Google Play Store is one of them. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the performances of the app library are being improved nearly every single day via software updates.
The latest update for the Google Play Store sports the 15.1.23 version number and all Android fans who are keeping their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network will receive it. However, there is an alternative way to download the new update.
Google’s developers are always releasing their latest updates in the form of APK. This is a special type of update and APK stands for “Android Package Kit”. Therefore, APK releases are exclusive for Android smartphone users. What makes this type of updates stand out is the fact that Android users can manually download and install them on their smartphones which means that they can avoid having to wait for Google to release them via OTA (over the air) channels.
Moreover, all Android users who want to install the latest Google Play Store update in the form of APK will be required to first head over to their Setting’s panel and then enable the “Unknown Sources” option.
