If there’s something that everyone in the smartphone industry can agree about, then it has to be the fact that Google is the best in the industry at improving its features and services. The Android parent has a massive team of developers who are constantly looking for new ways of improving the Android operating system and they do this through APK updates. Talking about APK updates, Android users should be happy to know that Google has released a brand-new one for the Google Play Store.
Google Play Store – New Update
As previously mentioned, the new Google Play Store update is available in the form of APK. If this is the first time that you are hearing about APK updates, then you should know that this format stands for “Android Package Kit” and that all updates which are being released in the form of APK need to be manually downloaded and installed.
Even though having to manually install an APK update might be annoying when compared to simply download it OTA (over the air), it’s all worth it. These APK updates are filled with bug fixes that improve the performances of Google’s services and they are released weeks before the public versions get released OTA.
Since we are talking about a new Google Play Store update, the question that must be sitting on everyone’s minds has to be what’s new? Some of you might be disappointed to hear that the new Google Play Store update doesn’t come with any new features, however, this doesn’t mean that it’s worth our attention because instead of new features, Google has decided to fill the new update with lots of bug fixes.
Therefore, all Android users who want to make sure that the Google Play Store is working without any issues and that it doesn’t randomly crash should make sure to get their hands on the new APK update as soon as possible.
