All Android devices, new or old, must ensure that Google Play is working properly if the device is to stay current. What’s Google Play Store? It’s the home to millions of applications that have been developed by talented folks from around the world – people who are interested in hearing about ideas that could become the next popular app.
Google Play Store has the responsibility for handing out updates and locating new applications for people to spend their free time on. These apps can be as simple as a flashlight to major game playing. Regardless of the app type, Google has managed to make sure these applications run as they should.
The Google Play app doesn’t get updated very often unless there are some bugs, security breaches or glitches that need to be fixed. In fact, Google has done a wonderful job that keeps things secure and there’s been no indication that they’ve not done so.
Since they are the biggest data centers in the world, Google needs to be thorough in terms of its security. The v6.1.14 update for Google Play merely fixes compatibility issues and bugs.
The Importance Of Updates
Google Play updates don’t change the functionality of the app, but downloading the recent APK file from its servers and installing them ensures that your personal information, app reviews, financial information and other tools are kept as securely as it can be.
In fact, a single zero-day security susceptibility can be extremely distressing according to Google, and they don’t take risks. This is good for the millions of users of Google products.
Google has also had to deal with piracy. And, even though the company can recognize these kinds of apps, it cannot act if the permissions for them to do so are withdrawn. The possibility of this happening is high if a phone has third party app stores that have their own applications listings – some that can’t be found on Google Play Store because they are against the developer’s terms and conditions.
