All Android fans who use the Google Play Store in order to download apps and games should be pleased to know that a brand-new update has been released today. In typical Google fashion, the new update is currently available only in the form of APK which means that all interested Android users will need to manually download and install the new update on their smartphones.
However, Google is also going to release the update through OTA (over the air) channels to everyone who has yet to manually download and install the update. On the downside of things, we don’t know how much time it’s going to take before Google does decide to release the update OTA.
Google Play Store 13.5.18 APK
The latest update for the Google Play Store sports the 13.5.18 version number and, as previously mentioned, it is available in the form of APK. This is an acronym for “Android Package Kit” and it is the file format that Google always releases its updates in. Everyone who wants to get their hands on the new software tweaks and bug fixes that the new Google Play Store 13.5.18 APK introduces can do it right, but there’s a catch.
The catch to installing APK updates is that since obviously, they don’t come from the Google Play Store, Android users need to access the Settings panel in their smartphones and then enable the “Unknown Sources” option so that their smartphones can become eligible for APK updates.
The reason why this new update for the Google Play Store is a high priority download for all Android fans is because it comes with a handful of software tweaks and bug fixes that improve the service’s performances and make it faster than usual. Not only that, but the bug fixes also enhance the software stability.
