Google Play Store At Long Last Testing Simultaneous App Downloads

Regardless of whether it’s pushing out system updates or getting another material design makeover, the Google Play Store is apparently in for some changes. Those changes also incorporated concurrent downloads.


Simultaneous app downloads are one of those features that most likely should have been around from the starting point. That said, few users are at long last observing the feature enabled in the Play Store.

Don’t make a fuss if you don’t see the feature enabled on your device. This appears to be a server-side change, so it may take a bit until you see simultaneous app downloads in the Play Store. When you get it, it’s one of those quality-of-life changes that decline the measure of time you spend updating your apps.

Simultaneous app downloads aren’t the just new feature seen in the updated version of the Play Store — there’s additional internal app sharing. The feature gives a developer chance a rough version of an app or app update to those welcome to an internal test channel.

Interestingly, Google doesn’t review any apps shared through inner app sharing. Google additionally notes that these apps probably won’t meet the Google Play Terms of Service. As risky as that sounds, Google already enables developers to make internal test channels — internal app sharing is just a setting that users can really observe and toggle.
