[Q] How does install from browser work?

We all know, Google Play Store offers us a unique (and quite user-friendly in my opinion) feature of installing an app from the browser of your computer. All we got to do is login to your PC's browser using your GMAIL account, access play.google.com/store, search for a the app there and click on Install.
Behind the scenes, Google somehow finds out the device which has the same Google account registered and the download gets started on this device!

I would like to know all that happens 'behind the scenes' and all the related APIs.

[Note: Tried to search for a similar question but couldn't find one. If there exists, please let me know the link to it]

Thanks in advance!
