There are several operating systems that a smartphone might use. However, regardless of personal preferences and whatnot, it commonly agreed upon that the leading solutions in this department are the iOS platform from Apple and Google’s Android.
Taking a closer look at the latter, we see that there is a strong connection between the OS itself and the various apps that help it become whole and function. These apps need to be updated constantly so that they continue to be up to par and also secure against threats. Updates bring important changes and fix issues that have eluded the developer previously.
The Google Play Store app is no exception. Actually, many would say that it is a rule enforcer. Google’s Play Store app helps users keep tabs on all their installed applications as well as the ones that aren’t installed. Through this app you have a windows to Google’s powerfully supplied Play Store, which is the marketplace from which all Android smartphones draw their power (and apps).
In case you want to update an app or remove it, you will yet again make use of the Play Store app. The list of benefits from keeping it updated goes on and on. If you want to update your Play Store app, you can do so by downloading the latest Play Store APK.
APKs are Android installation files that will install a specific version of an app once the file is accessed from your device. Simply access a trusted APK website and download the latest one for Google’s Play Store. Once that’s done, copy the file over to your phone’s internal storage.
Now it’s time to make sure the file is allowed to proceed once the installation process starts. You do this by navigating to your phone’s settings and enabling the “Unknown Sources” option. This will allow your device to install apps that don’t come directly from the Play Store.
From here on out it should be a breeze. Simply follow the on-screen instructions of the installation and you’ll have the latest version of the Play Store in no time. The installation process takes less than a minute.
