Google’s Androidify app got bumped to version 4.0 Wednesday, which includes lots of LGBT-themed content and other customizations. 

The Androidify site teases an online Pride parade to coincide with the festivities taking place in many cities June 27 and 28. To get your character included, you need to create one before then and submit it to the Android gallery.

The update includes many Pride-themed clothing accessories, like wigs, pants, and hairstyles. You can also outfit your robot with a Pride-themed shirt and the trademark rainbow flag to make it stand out in the parade.

You can get the update when it rolls through the Google Play Store. Or an updated build is available now from APK Mirror.

The impact on you: Google likes to have a lot of fun with its Android characters, and this is the most recent gift that you can play around with. The company, like many in Silicon Valley, is also a strong supporter of LGBT causes. So offering everyone a playful way to show their support for the annual Pride event is a natural fit.
