New Google Play update released – includes Location Bug fix

google-play-logo
The Google Play store is getting an update which is rolling out to Android devices gradually, the update from 4.1.6 to 4.1.10 is specifically addressing a bug which was causing severe battery drain that was affecting HTC onwers.

Android Police had a look into the update and found that it downloads a Network Location Provider patch. There isn’t a terribly large amount of changes in the new Play Store update and appears to primarily be a bug fix release.

The update on the Google Product Forums addresses the fix which you can get in a number of ways, you can wait and have your device update or you can head over to Android Police where there is a full array of download links and mirrors.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
