The biggest advantage that using an Android powered smartphone brings is getting access to the millions of apps that are listed on the Google Play Store. This app library is one of the staple features that Google’s Android operating system has to offer and therefore, it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that Google is updating the app library every couple of days.
With that said, a new update for the Google Play Store has arrived and today we are going to take a closer look at the new bug fixes and software tweaks that it brings. In addition, the update is available in the form of APK and therefore, we are also going to present a short installation guide.
Google Play Store 14.5.2 APK Update
The new update has been made available for download from Google’s official APK website and all other reliable APK providers. However, Google is going to take at least one week before it decides to release the new update via OTA (over the air) channels to all Android users. This means that the only Android users who can get their hands on the software tweaks that the new update introduces are those who are willing to manually download and install it because this is the case for all APK updates.
How to Install APK Updates
Installing APK updates is a bit different than normal ones. Instead of hitting a “Download” button and waiting for the update to be manually installed, Android users will need to also head over to their smartphone’s Settings panel and enable the “Unknown Sources” option which makes their smartphones eligible for this kind of updates.
Faster Boot Time
Android users should be pleased to find out that the latest update for the Google Play Store introduces a handful of software tweaks that improve its overall performances. Not just that, but these software tweaks are also speeding up the boot time for the Google Play Store.
