The Google Play Store has recently received a new APK which changes the service’s build number to 13.3.17. This is a high priority download for all Android users who want to make sure that their smartphone is running at peak performance levels. However, APK updates are a bit tricky to install since Android users are required to manually download and install them on their smartphones. Well, here is where we come in because today we are going to show everyone just how easy it is to install an APK update.
How to Install Google Play Store 13.3.17 APK
The first thing that all Android users who want to install a new APK update on their smartphone should do is to head over to the device’s Settings panel and then enable the “Unknown Sources” option. Obviously, APK updates are not released OTA (over the air) or through the Google Play Store and therefore, they are considered to come from external sources.
After enabling the “Unknown Sources” option, Android users will need to find a reliable APK website where they can download the latest version of the Google Play Store. There are lots of APK websites and finding a good one shouldn’t’ be that difficult.
Now that the “Unknown Sources” option and the latest Google Play Store APK file has been downloaded, all that Android users need to do next is to tap on the recently downloaded file. The APK update will be automatically installed in a couple of seconds.
Yes, we know. Having to manually install an update is a bit annoying, but it’s all worth it when considering that APK updates give Android users access to all the latest features, bug fixes and software tweaks weeks ahead of everyone else. However, these features, bug fixes and software tweaks are also going to be rolled out OTA during the upcoming future.
