You might soon be able to update your Android phone from the Google Play Store

Google is finally thinking of some real improvements to its update delivery system. The company is planning to introduce a new feature in Android that will let you download and install system updates right from Google Play Store.

As first spotted by 9to5Google, several new strings with regard to the Android system updates have been found in version 14.5.52 of the Play Store. According to the new strings, you will find a ‘Download and Install’ button in the Play Store, exactly like the one you find in the system update page in the settings app.

This is an interesting development. Although we haven’t heard anything from the horse’s mouth, once implemented, the feature might let you get system updates as soon as the official update begins to roll out. I doubt if there is any real purpose other than the one mentioned above. Nonetheless, if that is what Google is trying to do then it won’t be an easy thing pull off given the heterogeneity of the Android ecosystem.

What do our readers think about this feature? How about some brainstorming in the comments section?
