Multi-Device Sync Finally Makes Its Way to the Android Play Store

Long gone are the days when people could use just a single device to get everything done. Nowadays, you will likely have anywhere from two to four Android devices that you would be utilizing. In spite of the fact that this is the case, it has been quite difficult to sync multiple devices to the Android Play Store, but the good news is that Google is finally taking some steps to make it easier than might have been the case otherwise!

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that there are some reports indicating that multi-device app syncing might be coming to Android phones at long last. Hence, no matter what device you download an app on, turning on multi-device syncing will make it so that the app will available on all of the Android devices that are a part of your ecosystem.

This is actually fairly similar to what iOS users have been enjoying for quite some time now, so in a way it is yet another example of a feature that Android is borrowing after Apple has offered it. However, one slightly distinct feature is that users can deselect devices that they don’t want apps syncing with from a different menu.

This feature has already been available for most Android products, but interestingly smartphones only got added to the mix quite recently. Most Android users will be overjoyed at this update because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up preventing them from having to download an app on every single device that they own. Instead, they can just download the app once and have it sync up automatically.

Android users can have all of their apps up and ready to go the moment that they set up their phones. If they prefer not to do so, they will have to go to the Play Store and do it manually. Either way, this update gives users an option that they have been asking for, and it will most likely go over well with the Android crowd.
