Why use Play Store on your Motorola phone?
Google Play Store, as we all know, is the official Android app and entertainment market from Google, and it is the biggest and best marketplace of its kind in the digital world. This is where you can find really cool apps to get the most out of your Motorola smartphone, games, media, e-books, magazines and movies and much more. Play Store, of course, has all the basic features you need for functionality, such as downloading apps, updating already installed apps, browsing and searching. But Google Play is much more than that, and it has many features that might surprise you.
You can add your favorite apps to your personalized “Wishlist” in the Play Store, which aims to help you keep track of all the Android apps you would like to use or purchase for your Motorola at some point; you can see and edit your Wishlist at any time. Google Play Store has Gift Cards, which you can buy, send or receive and redeem very easily.
One of the most amazing features in Google Play Store is the possibility of getting a purchase refund. Because sometimes, you might purchase an app thinking it is worth it, but then you get really disappointed when you find that it’s not what you expected at all! So, you can ask the developers for a refund through the Play Store itself.
Safety and privacy for your Motorola with Google Play Store
Google Play Store also has the feature of content filtering, which is made for you to control what kind of apps you want to see in your Play Store, in terms of maturity level, especially if you have kids using your Motorola phone or tablet. The password restriction feature for app purchases is another cool feature in the Play Store; in case there is more than one user of the Android device, password restriction will prevent unwanted app purchases from being charged to your Google wallet.
The same thing goes for password-protection, where you can lock the Play Store to prevent any other user from entering and messing with your account. Plus, you can also track all the in-app and app purchases, see orders, disable update notifications, and stop automatic updates of the apps. If you have more than one Android device connected to a single Play Store account, and you feel lost between all the apps you have on all these devices, you have the choice to see the entire collection from one place.
Another awesome feature you can enjoy with Play Store on your Motorola device is remote access to your Droid with Android Device Manager. It allows you to access your device (or devices) remotely, so you can ring it, lock it and erase all data in case you lose it or it gets stolen. You can keep track of all your data, information and digital content that are registered under the same Google account using Android Device Manager.
