Google Play Store doesn’t need much of an introduction. The app store is the largest on the web, with 2.7 million apps available for download.

This is actually a lot less than the service used to offer. Way less, in fact. Google Play Store had more than 3.7 million apps in 2016, but it got rid of a million of them (as you do) because they were deemed inadequate, or in contradiction with the company’s terms on the Play Store.

Many an app fell that year due to their content breaking copyright laws, or even for the whole makeup of the app being adware, or even malware. In short, Google took preventative measures to ensure that only legitimate apps found their way onto the Play Store, and that users wouldn’t be bombarded with cheap rubbish in an attempt to gather data.

Why Use Google Play Store?

In short, if you’re running an Android device, then this is the official app store that is pre-installed on all Android devices. It’s likely, therefore, that you’ve already used the service to download apps and games onto your phone or tablet.

Of all the app stores out there, only a few are really legitimate. This doesn’t mean that they’re the only good ones, but it does mean that they’re the most secure. You won’t find malware on the Google Play Store, and if you did, then Google would immediately remove it.

That being said, with Google Play Store’s rigid rules, lots of great apps and games don’t appear on the store, so it can be necessary to use another app website in tandem with the service. Download big apps like Facebook and Instagram from Google Play Store, and smaller independent apps from an apk website.
