Smart TVs are becoming more and more popular nowadays and the reason behind that is that they give users access to streaming platforms such as Netflix and HBO GO. Things are going to get even better in the upcoming future because lots of other companies are planning to launch their own streaming platforms with Disney and Apple leading the way. Therefore, the Google Play Store is one of the most important features of smart TVs because they give users to download all the apps that they want.
Android Smart TVs
The great thing about Android powered smart TVs is the fact that they ship with all the premium features that Google’s mobile operating system offers, the Google Play Store included. Since we are talking about the Google Play Store, we need to mention that the Android parent has recently released a brand-new update for it.
New Google Play Store APK Update
The latest update for the smart TV version of the Google Play Store sports the 13.1.33 version number and it was released three days ago. The first thing that we need to mention about the new update is that since it comes in the form of APK, interested Android users are required to manually download and install it on their smartphones. On the other hand, Google is eventually going to release the update OTA (over the air), but this is going to happen during the next weeks.
Considering that the Google Play Store is one of the most important features that Android powered smart TVs have to offer, Google has made sure that the service’s features are running without any issues and it made the new 13.1.33 APK a maintenance update. Additionally, the new APK update also introduces a bunch of bug fixes that enhance the Google Play Store’s software stability.
