Google Play: everything new in the September update
The September Google Play update brings a host of security fixes, system optimizations, feature enhancements, and new features for Google Kids Space.
Google has communicated on the new features brought by the September Play Store update. One of the main changes concerns Google Kids Space, which will allow users to hide app recommendations. This space for children, which is relieved of content that is not considered compatible with a young age, will also be able to be configured as a secondary account on a tablet. This will allow adults to lend their tablet to a child rather than buying one just for him.
The patch notes also mention bug fixes for security and privacy, as well as services related to system management and diagnostics. In addition, optimizations of the system management services aim to improve device connectivitynetwork usage, stability, security, and ease of updating.
