How to Install on PC:
For installing on PC, You need an Android Emulator developed for Windows. There are several such emulators available which you may use to run Android apps and games on your computer. We recommend to use BlueStacks (App Player) as this emulator carries built-in Play Store accessibility feature. For other emulators, just install the Play Store app with APK file and you can access it like you do on your mobile devices.
Play Store is developed for all kinds of Android devices. It requires internet connection to access its database. Apps are displayed in grids thus making it easier to choose from.
The user interface of Play Store app is fully responsive and adapts to the screen size of devices. Apps are categorized in twenty seven major categories for sorting and easier navigation. Moreover, apps are also categorized in another way like ‘Top Paid’, ‘Top Free’, ‘Top Grossing’, ‘Trending’ etc. While viewing any selected app, related apps and popular apps are also shown along with other apps developed by the same developer. Users can read description for individual apps, see previews of app layout, see version and requirements, rate the app and add the review. Play Store also gives the option to change the rating any time and edit the review which was made previously. Users can add desired apps to wishlist. So, they can view and install them later. From navigation menu, My Apps option displays all the apps that were installed through Play Store. From settings, users can enable notifications, enable and disable auto updating of apps, clear local search history, filter the contents, enable option to add icon to homescreen, and change authentication requirement settings for purchases.
Google Play Store automatically displays notifications for newer updates. If auto-update option enabled, app updates are automatically downloaded and installed. If, you are using limited phone data plan, you should consider turning this feature off as it will exhaust the available data volume.
Mostly, Play Store comes pre-installed on Android devices. Android Phone and tablet users just need to make a Google account and they can immediately start using it to install market apps on their devices. Custom ROMs made by third party developers also often integrate this application store in them to help ease the access of rooted and customized phone users to the whole world of cool games and applications. The alternative way to get Play Store for Android devices is to install it through APK file. You can download Google Play Store APK below. It can be installed just like installing software on PC. Always get original APK file to secure the transactions and save the phone from malwares and malicious attacks.
