Google System Update for September is Aimed Mostly at Play Store

A new month is upon us and with that comes another System update that includes new goodies through Google Play and Google Play Services. The updates should start rolling out as early as tomorrow, so be on the lookout for new stuff.

can be quite vague and non specific with the changelogs for these types of updates, but this is certainly better than the nothing burger we used to be served. Under the Google Play Store section of the changelog, Google lists new features for discovering new apps, new features for Play Pass and Play Points, as well as Google Play Billing enhancements. Again, hardly any specifics.

Here’s the changelog for September, according to Google.
