The Android operating system offers lots of cool features that people love to use but if we had to pick one that is the most important, then Google Play Store would be our candidate. The reason behind this is that Google Play Store offers Android fans access to millions of fun apps and mobile games that they can download and install whenever they want. Not just that, but Google Play Store is also making sure to automatically update all apps and mobile games that have been previously installed.
Taking into consideration the fact that Google Play Store is such an important component in the Android operating system, then no one should be shocked to find out that the Android parent is constantly rolling out updates for it. In fact, a new update on which sports the 17.1.16 version number has been released and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.
Google Play Store 17.1.16 Update
Android fans should be pleased to know that if they keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network, a new update is going to pop up in their notifications panel. This is due to the fact that the new update for Google Play Store which sports the 17.1.16 version number is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels.
We also want to mention that tech-savvy Android fans can manually download the new update if they chose so. This is made possible because the Android parent has released the new update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit) and this type of updates can be manually installed on smartphones that have the “Unknown Sources” option enabled.
The new update for Google Play Store doesn’t come with any exciting features but this doesn’t mean that it is not a high priority release, quite the opposite. Instead of new features, the update introduces a handful of software tweaks that have been specially designed to improve the overall speed of the app library.
