  • The Google Play Store is rolling out support for simultaneous downloads of apps.
  • We have it working on a Galaxy S23 Ultra and reports of it working on many other devices.
  • Unfortunately, you can’t update multiple apps at the same time, at least not yet.

When you get a new Android phone, one of the first things you’ll do is install all your favorite apps. When you’ve done so in the past, you’ve needed to wait for the Google Play Store to download each app one at a time. This can be very frustrating, especially for those of us who download dozens of apps during this process.

Thankfully, it looks like Google made this process a tiny bit faster at some point recently. Today, it looks like the Play Store is capable of downloading two apps at once. It’s a small change, I’ll admit, but anything to cut down on the time it takes to set up a new phone is a win in my book.

We have this working on a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, but 9to5Google has it working on several Pixel devices, too, so it should be pretty widespread, assuming you have a recent version of Android and the latest version of the Play Store itself. Check out the screenshot…
