Download Apps Faster! Play Store Gets Upgrade

Great news for Android users! A long-awaited update to the Google Play Store – simultaneous app downloads – has finally arrived after years of testing. This is a fantastic quality-of-life improvement for Android users.

Say goodbye to the frustration of waiting for one app to download before starting another. With this update, you can download two apps concurrently, significantly speeding up the process, especially for larger apps like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

Here’s how it works: Simply select two apps you want to download and watch their progress bars move simultaneously in the Play Store and on your home screen.

Important to note

  • This feature currently only applies to new app installations, not updates.
  • You can download up to two apps at a time. Any additional downloads will be queued as “pending” until a slot opens.
  • While the iOS App Store allows for three concurrent downloads, this is a promising first step for Google Play. We anticipate future updates expanding this functionality.

The biggest benefit? This update shines when setting up a new Android device. No more waiting for apps to download one by one – get your phone or tablet fully functional in no time!

VINAStech is excited about this update and the improved user experience it brings to the Android ecosystem. Stay tuned for further updates as Google Play continues to develop this feature!
