If you ever wanted to download an app or a mobile game on an Android-powered smartphone, then you surely know just how important it is for the Google Play Store to run at peak performance levels. The Google Play Store gives Android users access to millions of apps and mobile games that they can download at any time they want and therefore, making sure that the Google Play Store is updated with all the latest software optimization tweaks and bug fixes should be the top priority of all Android smartphone users.
Google Play Store 14.4.20 Update
The perfect example of just how important the Google Play Store is to the Android operating system is the fact that the Android parent is always releasing new updates for it. Google’s developers are constantly releasing new updates for the Google Play Store and a brand-new one has arrived today.
The new update changes the Google Play Store’s build number to 14.4.20 and it focuses on improving its performances. The way that the new update does this is by introducing a handful of software tweaks that not only boost the overall performances of the Google Play Store but also improve its software stability, thus lowering the chances for the app and game library to crash.
APK or OTA Release
The last thing that we want to cover is the fact that the update is currently available in the form of APK. This is an acronym for “Android Package Kit” and what makes it special is that all Android smartphone users who want to access the new Google Play Store update will need to manually download and install it on their smartphones.
Luckily, installing the update in the form of APK is not necessary. Android smartphone users who are not that keen on manually downloading and installing updates can always wait for them to be rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels.
