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.
