Google Play gets optimized for mobile

On Android most people can access the Google Play store via a mobile app. There are a some instances where people including those on other than Android devices need to access the not-so-nice mobile version of Google Play. To fix that problem Google has finally decided to update their Google Play site by making it more mobile friendly.

Users will now have the ability to send apps to your other Android devices and access the device section of the store, both features which are not available on the Google Play app and are the main reasons why an Android user would go to the mobile site. Previously before the update, users would have to load the desktop version of the mobile site in order to complete those tasks as there was no mobile version.

The new features will also allow users browsing from BlackBerry, iOS, or even a Windows phone to browse the best of what Android has. The update will even let iPhone 5s owners upgrade to a Nexus 5 without ever touching a desktop.

The only question that remains is why haven’t the devices category or the ability to send apps to your other devices made their way into the Google Play app yet?
