Google System Updates welcome almost-forgotten audio switching feature

And something small for Play Games for PC

september pack Google system updates it was made public a couple of weeks ago, although, in fact, we had reported on many of the features it contains before. However, it turns out we have a couple of latecomers to the finish line, so we wanted to make sure you knew what was officially coming with each component update.

Google has been expanding access in several regions to its beta version of Play Games for PC, which allows users to load Android games onto their Windows machines. With a late Play Store update to v32.4, the company seems to be catching up as it will now list the specific availability of titles based on the market the user is in.


In July, Google introduced smart audio change support which allows Android to determine where to route audio when dealing with multiple multipoint Bluetooth devices. That support was limited to Pixel Buds Pro at first, but it was supposed to roll out to third-party hardware like JBL and Sony at some point. Consider this point that point: it is with Google Play services version 31.22. No, we don’t know why such an old update for a feature that should have been implemented months ago is now being added to the September updates, but at least it’s been duly noted.

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