Google Play, the Android app download platform, has decided to allow users to uninstall applications remotely on their various devices. This means that from your PC, you can manage the applications on your Android phone and uninstall the apps you want at your convenience.
This feature has arrived with the latest update of the application, which also includes other improvements in performance and app recommendations. However, the ability to delete apps from a PC without needing to activate the phone has become one of the most interesting enhancements of the latest Google Play patch.
The PC takes center stage
It’s not anything new that, from the PC, using the web version of Google Play, you can download applications on selected devices associated with your account. However, the option to uninstall them is indeed something very innovative. As stated in the release notes of the latest Google Play patch, this feature will enhance the management capabilities of devices connected to your Google account.
It’s a relatively small change within Google Play, but it’s a handy feature that once again improves user experience and usability of Google Play through a computer. Like other companies, Google is trying to pivot its smartphone services back around the PC, aiming to enhance the overall user experience.
Google Play Games branching out from smartphones
Another aspect that demonstrates Google’s interest in making the Android ecosystem more manageable through PC is that a significant part of Google Play, Google Play Games, now operates independently on PC with a catalog of thousands of games, including popular titles like Clash of Clans or the Android version of Genshin Impact, among others.
Moreover, one of the most interesting aspects of this system is that the game controls are properly adapted to be enjoyed with a keyboard and mouse. Additionally, many games also have compatibility with console controllers, including those from Xbox and PlayStation.
