    Now remotely remove an app from any connected device through Play Store

    Android is not only a smartphone operating system, it also extends over to smartwatches, smart TVs, and vehicles. Since it is an open-source OS, developers can create apps for any device and post them on the Play Store. As of now, you can remotely install apps on any of your connected devices via the Play Store on your smartphone. However, Google may soon give you the option to remotely uninstall apps from any device.

    The primary benefit of remote app removal from the Play Store is that it allows consumers to remove undesired apps from their devices that are difficult to use. For example, searching for and removing an app from a smart TV may be difficult, and the smartwatch's small screen may be limited in the same situation. Using the Play Store on your PC or Android smartphone will be a lot easier and faster.

    The remote removal of apps feature was spotted on the latest version of the Play Store

    For installing apps, you need to log in to all the devices with the same Google account. Note that the remote installation works as long as both devices are connected to the internet. So, if your other device is lying in another part of the world and it isn't connected to the internet, the remote app installation will only begin once its internet connection gets restored. And it seems like the same functionality might arrive for the remote removal of apps.

    As suggested in the latest Play Store version 38.3, Google added a new feature to allow the uninstallation of apps on connected devices. It isn't clear if it will be limited to a few app categories or select types of Android apps. Assuming that the feature will have no restrictions, you will be able to remove apps from connected devices without needing to physically touch them.

    The Galaxy experience can be messy for first-time users

    Some say it's always better to have more options, but it's never as clear-cut as it sounds. This design philosophy doesn't always work, and more importantly, it isn't a magical shortcut that can patch everything up and always lead to a better user experience. On the contrary, if not handled properly, I believe the “more […]
