To be able to get the most out of your Google Play Store account, you must always update it. By default, Google Play will update itself. But, if you want to make sure that is really up to date or just manually update it, then, you can do so by following the tutorial below.

What is the importance of updating your Google Play as well as all the other apps in your android phone? According to Google: Updating your apps to the latest version gives you access to the latest features and improves app security and stability. Important: If Google determines that an app update fixes a critical security vulnerability, we may make certain app updates.

But even though your Google Play is outdated, you can still use it but expect some errors while installing an app or game. Or, if not errors, your android will always notify you to update Play Store which is definitely annoying. You'll never know when it might happen though. You can even uninstall its update but you can never remove it, because it is a default app inside your android phone.
