Google System Updates welcome the almost-forgotten audio toggle feature

Google System Updates welcome the almost-forgotten audio toggle feature
Written by admin

And a little something for Play Games for PC

The September package of Google system updates was released a couple of weeks ago, although in fact we’ve previously reported on many of the features included. However, it turns out we have a few latecomers who crossed the finish line late, so we wanted to make sure you know what’s officially coming with which component update.

Google has expanded multi-region access to its Play Games for PC beta, which allows users to load Android games onto their Windows computers. With a late Play Store update to v32.4, the company appears to be catching up as it will now list specific title availability based on the user’s market.


Back in July, Google introduced support for Smart Audio Switching, which allows Android to determine where audio should go when dealing with multiple multipoint Bluetooth devices. This support was initially limited to Pixel Buds Pro, but would eventually expand to third-party hardware like JBL and Sony. Consider this point, the point – it’s with Google Play Services version 31.22. No, we don’t know why such an old update for a feature that should have rolled out months ago is now being appended to the September updates, but at least it was given due notice.

The full changelog for these updates is available below. You can view all Google System Update change logs from Google. See the footnotes that dictate the features associated with a Google Play system update, Google Play Store app v32.4, or a specific version of Google Play Services.
