When you buy an Android device, it often comes with several apps that will assist you to get more. One such app would be the Google Play Store where you find free and pay-to-download items for your device – apps, books, movies and music. The only thing you need to access the Google Play Store on the device is a connection to the Internet – mobile data or Wi-Fi.

Do You Really Need The Google Play Store?

The best part about the Android devices is that they can still function even if you opt to disable the Play Store. You can download any number of apps without it. How so?

Android devices are noted as being open source software, which means anybody can develop any kind of program they want and use it on the device. iOS users don’t have that ability, as they have a stringent process to get an app on the Apple Store.

Of course, there are hidden dangers with downloading something “unknown” on the device, which is why you should have the Play Store loaded onto your device.

How To Update Your Play Store App

The latest Play Store app version is 7.0.16. Although it’s easiest to attain the app over the air, you can download the APK file for yourself, if you’d like. Think of the APK file as an EXE file. You download the version from any reputable, trustworthy APK website and install the file onto the device.

While you can change your mind, it’s always best to have the latest version installed on your phone.
