The latest Google System Updates bring the almost forgotten audio transition feature
Written by admin

And a little something for Play Games for PC

September package Google System Updates it was released to the public a few weeks ago, although we actually reported on many of the features earlier. However, it turned out that we had a few stray players who were late to the finish line, so we wanted to make sure you knew what was officially coming with which component update.

Google is expanding access in several districts to Play Games beta for PC, which allows users to download Android games on Windows machines. With the belated Play Store update to v32.4, the company seems to be fitting in as it will now list specific availability for titles depending on the market the user is in.


In July, Google introduced smart audio transition support allows Android to determine where to direct audio when working with multipoint Bluetooth devices. This support was limited Pixel Buds Pro at first, but at some point it was supposed to roll out to third-party hardware like JBL and Sony. Consider this point – this is version 31.22.0 of Google Play services. No, we don’t know if such an old update for a feature that should have been introduced months ago is now being added to the September updates, but at least it’s duly noted.

The full changelog for these updates is available below. You can view all Google System Update changelogs here Google. Be aware of notes that dictate features related to Google Play System Update, Google Play Store app v32.4, or specific Google Play services version.
