Google has changed its policy regarding users that don’t like using the Google Play Store.

The idea of Google is t remove the restriction on downloading updates for already installed games and programs from Google Play for unauthorized users. However, if the user decides to exit the app store, he needs more updates, but the new initiative allows downloading applications for programs even without entering usernames and passwords. This option is available.

However, it is just in words. The hardest thing that may seem at first glance. This is a confirmation that Google may create errors or errors. It is recommended to contact Google directly with a detailed description of the problems found. This option should appear on Android devices soon.


One of Google’s key products is the Chrome web browser, which is getting better and better every year.

Today, February 18, 2019, the release of the new Google Chrome for Android took place, which everyone can already install, but so far in the test version.

In short, immediately after installation, you can easily notice that the web browser for mobile devices based on the Android operating system has changed radically, and soon the same innovations are most likely waiting for users of mobile devices based on iOS. Previously, the list of open tabs was located in a vertical form, with the result that only the top of all websites was visible, now the contributions look like small miniatures, and most of one page or another page is visible on them.
