The reason Google advises us to download apps only in the Play Store is not only for security reasons. The compatibility is another reason. When you sideload the apps, You may have experience incompatibility or screen alignment issues. When we download the apps from Play Store with our devices, there is no issue; Google will automatically omit the unsupported apps.

So, When you want to sync the app along with devices, these compatibility details will be helpful for you. When your selected app doesn’t supp[ort one of your devices, you can move to alternate available apps.
