New information leaked from Google has revealed that Android 12 will make it easier to download apps from third-party stores.
Android has been allowing users to use third-party app stores and install apps using APK files for years. However, these procedures are not very intuitive and understandable for everyone. Additionally, apps installed in this way do not update automatically.
This will change on Android 12. According to the XDA Developers publication, which carefully reviews the code for the beta version of the new operating system, third-party app stores will now be able to automatically update several programs installed from them at the same time.
In this case, the user will still have to allow a third-party store only once to use the device’s internal memory. The standard Google Play Store works the same way.
As a reminder, the beta version of Android 12 opened this week to Pixel smartphones and some other brands. Google will release the latest version of this operating system in the fall.
