Something's up: 16 core Android apps have been updated near simultaneously
Of course, it's worth pointing out that within that number of 16 apps, at least Google+ and Hangouts have a plausible explanation. The rest, however, are a good indicator that something is happening. What makes this even more curious, is the fact that these updates have not been pushed to any one device so far – you can see their updated date tags on the Play Store, but you ain't getting an automatic update as per usual.
Unfortunately, speculation hasn't really gotten us anywhere thus far, so this time around we'll let you form your own opinions. In case you're curious, you can see the full list of apps that have been updated right below.
- Google Play Services
- Play Magazines
