Google play store is one of the most popular apps out there. But do you know all of its secrets? Here are the best 3 tips to keep in mind when using the app.
Stop the automatic updates
The app will download updates available for your app exactly when you don’t want to. Be careful because this may finish all of your data.
We can teach you how to stop the automatic updates: go to the Google Play Store, then go to Settings. From there, click on Update Apps. Choose the option Do not automatically update applications. After this, you will choose when and where Google Play Store updates your apps.
You can see your order history
It’s always easier to buy stuff from the Play Store. Almost just as easier as it is to lost track of what you bought. You can get access to your Play Store purchase history – which also includes free downloads.
You need to open the Google Play Store and go to the menu. Press on Account, then on Order history. This is where you’ll find all of your purchases and download history.
Use your PC to download apps
Not many people know that you can do this. You can download apps on your Android device directly from your PC.
For this one, you need to log into your Google account and open Google Play Store. Find the app that you want to get and click on install. You will get a drop-down menu with the Android devices that are connected to the Google account. This one is very useful, especially if you wish to install the same app on other devices, too. Or you got a new phone, and you want a certain app installed on both your old phone and your new phone. It’s also easier to search for a certain app on a screen that’s bigger.
