Google Play Store offers a variety of content for Android devices and today we will show you how to download and install Android apps from there. Yes! The procedure is quite simple and we will not complicate it in any way.
To be mentioned, we are not covering Google Play Instant Apps in this scenario, so we will just give you the traditional way to get your desired apps from Google Play Store.
Also, you can access the Google Play Store to check the apps on the web version, but you will need to have an Android device to download and install the apps on your smartphone or any other platform. Also, Windows and Mac users will not be able to use Android apps on their devices (except Windows 11).
Let’s dive into the instructions.
First, you need to find the Play Store app and tap on the icon to launch it. Or open the Google Play store (web link).
Now go to the top search bar and enter the name of the app or game or the content you want to search for in the Play Store.
While typing the app name, you will be prompted with suggested apps related to your keywords along with the autocomplete, you can touch the autocomplete text to directly access the app.
If you don’t find your app name in the autocomplete, type the full name and hit the search button.
Select your app and it will take you to a details page, where you’ll need to tap the big “Install” button to begin the download process.
Note: After pressing the download key, you may have to wait depending on the size of the Android app/game and the speed of your internet connection.
Once downloaded, you will see two buttons: Uninstall or Open. You can tap Open to launch the app right away.
Or you can find it in the app drawer section to launch it at any time, because now it is installed on your Android device.
You can check the Google Play Store Data Security section of the app by scrolling down to check what data the app or game will collect from your device after installation.
The Google Play Store has the largest app library in any mobile app ecosystem. However, not all content is free on the platform. Therefore, you will also find apps with price tags, which means they are paid apps and you will have to pay the price tag to get them on your Android device.
If you proceed to download a paid app, you should know two things.
First, you will need to register the payment option/credentials in your Gmail account, before proceeding to the selected application. If you have already set up your payment option, you will be taken directly to the payment procedure, which only takes two steps.
