Google Play is the place to get apps, music, books and more on your Android device. We showed you how to download the APK (android package file) if you need to get around the Play Store, but most of the time Google Play is a treat to browse.

However, you may be neglecting one of the most convenient features of the Play Store. Everyone loves text messages from their computer so they don’t have to pick up the phone from their computer, so why not install apps the same way? If you ever hear of a new app that you want to try but don’t have a phone, you can sign in to Google Play on the web and just send the app to your phone.

You can browse Play on your desktop just like you can on your phone, and in some ways it’s even better for browsing apps. If you’re signed in with your Google account, all devices that also use that account (including tablets) can get apps from the web.

Just find the app you want to install and click the big button Install . If you have multiple devices, you can choose which one you want to install the app on, however, keep in mind that not every app is compatible with every device. Some don’t work on tablets, and if you’re using an older version of Android, the newer apps may not work.

You can make good use of this feature by downloading some of the best android apps.

What applications will you download using the web interface? Let us know if you know about this feature!
