  • Google appears to be quietly rolling out a new functionality for the Google Play Store.
  • The feature allows users to remotely uninstall apps from other devices.

While Google Play Store users have always been able to install apps remotely on their devices, they have never been able to uninstall them remotely. However, it looks like the Play Store has now been updated to include this functionality.

Tipster AssembleDebug has alerted Android Authority to a newly available feature in the Google Play Store. This feature allows a user to uninstall apps from other devices remotely. Although this feature was first spotted last year, hidden behind some flags, it appears Google has quietly rolled out the function widely.
