Google Play Store or the Android Market is the one-stop destination for android users who want to install or update apps. What started 12 years ago as the Android market continues to offer android users the latest innovations and technology.

Hence, it won’t be wrong to expect some new and cool features popping up soon in the next few updates. Until then, stay tuned!
