Simultaneous downloads, internal app testing coming to PlayStore

18 April 2019 3

Google is testing out new features for Google Play Store app that includes internal app sharing, simultaneous downloads and a revised UI for Google Play Protect in addition to making changes in ‘Movies & TV’ section of Play Store. Likewise, reports also claim that an all-new UI is also under works for Google Play Store.

The internal app sharing refers to the ability to download and install those apps that are available for testing. Interestingly these test versions of the apps aren’t like a beta version of the app instead they might refer to different channels like ‘closed alpha’ and ‘open beta’ and ‘internal test’ that the tech giant launched last year.


Another very interesting feature of simultaneous downloads allows the user to download multiple apps side by side unlike what is currently implemented where one app is download and then the next one begins. If your internet is fast with considerable bandwidth, this would be a neat feature for you.

Likewise, a third possible change is Play Protect interface, Google is working on a dedicated ‘Play Protect Settings’ which would allow users to toggle for device scan security threats and also ‘improve harmful app detection’. Then another option in the ‘Movies & TV’ section of PlayStore empowers the users to filter shows considering their native networks.

Are you looking forward to these changes in Google PlayStore? Share your views in the comment section below.

Hmm... at times, apps take turn to download, one by one, that's what you can say. But definitely it'll be time saving if Google indeed implements Simultaneous downloads.
