Google Play is an extension that you can download and use to find apps in the Google Play store. It gives you access to all the same apps that you can view on your phone or tablet but through your computer. This is a great way to learn about new apps and games, find books and magazines that you want to read and post reviews of the apps that you like. You can even use this extension on a smart television to find new apps.

Have you ever used an app before on your phone and wished that you could use the same one on your computer or tablet? As long as you use Chrome, you can now access all those apps across different devices. When you log into an existing Google account, the extension will let you access all the apps that you downloaded on one device on any other that you use with that same account. This even gives you access to apps when using a smart television or streaming stick from Google.

The best thing about this extension is that it gives you complete access to the Google Play store. If you get a gift card for the store, you can add it under your account and use that as payment when buying paid apps. You can enter your credit/debit card information each time you pay or enter it just once and use it each time. This extension gives you access to thousands of free games and apps too that do not cost a dime.

This extension also makes it easy to find exactly what you need too. It divides all the content available into different categories such as apps, movies and TV, books and newsstand. The newsstand features current issues of magazines and newspapers that you can buy and use on your device. You even have the option of signing up for a digital subscription and getting the new issue sent right to you. The books section includes top titles that you might want to read, while the movies and TV section features films and episodes of your favorite shows that you can buy and download. You'll also find free trailers that you can watch in this section. When looking for games, you can use the apps section to find recent releases and classic titles.

Google Play has its own website that you can access with Chrome or another browser, but the Google Play extension provides a more convenient way to access the virtual store.

Pros:

  • Gives you full access to the Google Play store from almost any device

  • Connects all features across different devices linked under a single account

Cons:
