Android fans should be happy to know that a new APK update for the Google Play Store has been made available for download. The update sports the 13.8.16 version number and it was released yesterday. Since the new update is fresh, the only ones who can download the update are Android fans who have enabled the “Unknown Sources” option on their smartphones. The reason why the “Unknown Sources” option needs to be enabled is because APK updates are first released on Google’s official website and only after a couple of weeks pass by, they get released via OTA (over the air) channels.
