The Google Play Store is the biggest source of games and apps for Android devices, but it’s seen its fair share of bugs in recent times and users are wondering what’s going on with it.
Thankfully, Google has come out with a Play Store version 9.1.24 that address some of the bugs and makes important improvements. Since it’s the one place most Android users turn to for their games and apps, it’s imperative to have the latest version installed on their device at all times.
You may not see anything new regarding the update, but the primary purpose of the update is to ensure stability. The Play Store will automatically download and update itself. However, if this isn’t possible, you do have the option of downloading and installing it from an outside source. First, you’ll need to enable “unknown sources” on your device to make it happen. Be sure to go to Settings, hit Security and enable Unknown Sources.
If your device operates on Android 8.0 or higher, you can go to Settings, Apps & Notifications, Special App Aces and Install Unknown apps.
Be sure to turn off the feature was the app has been downloaded and installed to ensure your device stays free of malware. Most of your apps will come from the Play Store anyway, so there really is no reason for you to have unknown sources enabled. If you have problems with a source, it can affect the other apps your device is installed with.
Be sure you get the latest Google Play Version, which lets you benefit from the latest features and addresses the bugs that can appear from time to time.
