Sharing is caring!

People often have issues with the Google Play Store when they decide not to update or ignore the prompt to update the app. The best thing about Google Play Store’s 7.0.17 is that it takes up very little memory compared to other APK files people are used to.

Be Mindful of Download Unknown Sources Apps

This Play Store version is downloadable from any trusted source that offers safe APK files. But, that does not mean it doesn’t have malware, viruses or any threats attached to it. Therefore, it’s up to you if the risk is worth it. There have been cases of hacked or infected Android devices, and the Play Store becoming unusable and non-functional.

How Can You Find Out If Play Store Offers Updates

Google Play Store will do updates in the background – you’ll never even know it. A majority of the time, Google will update the Store to fix bugs or streamline apps permission dialogue boxes. Still, it’s always good to have the latest Play Store version installed on your device.

The updates done for other apps do not apply here. Instead, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Launch app, go down the menu until you find the Settings option and then tap on it.
  • When you scroll down, you should see “Build Number.” Tap on it to find updates.
  • If there is an available update, you’ll be asked to download and install it. If you’re not asked to do this, it means your device already has the latest Google Play Store version installed.
