Everyone who owns an Android powered smartphone knows just how important the Google Play Store is. This service is a vital feature of Google’s Android operating system and without it, nothing would ever be the same. The reason why we are saying this is because the Play Store is the place where all Android users go to download their favorite apps and games from. With that said, Google makes sure to keep improving the software stability of the Play Store through a regular stream of updates and, in fact, a brand-new one has just arrived.
New Google Play Store Update
Today we are going to introduce the latest Play Store update, but not before mentioning the fact that it’s available in the form of APK. This format is an acronym for “Android Package Kit” and Google always uses it to release its new updates. However, there is a downside to APK updates. These updates are designed for eager Android users who want to get their hands on the latest features and bug fixes ahead of everyone and therefore, APK updates need to be manually downloaded.
Although, this doesn’t mean that all Android fans are required to manually download the new APK updates because Google is eventually going to roll them out OTA (over the air), but this is going to take a couple of weeks.
Under the Hood Software Tweaks
Android users who decide to get the new Play Store APK update should not expect to see any new features or graphical changes because the new APK focuses on improving the Play Store’s performance instead of design. Therefore, the new APK update is packed with lots of under the hood software tweaks that take the service’s performances to the next level and make it a much better place to download games and apps from.
