How to manually or automatically update apps on your Android device

As software developers make small improvements to their programs, it’s usual practice for them to offer updates on a regular basis. You should always maintain your Android apps up-to-date to ensure that you have the latest security and bug fixes. In addition, you may be missing out on recently added functionality. You’ll have to manually update your apps from the Google Play Store if you don’t have automatic updates set.

Both automatically and manually, your Android smartphone or tablet can receive updates for its installed applications. Your phone or tablet’s app updates can be controlled in a variety of ways.

How to automatically update Android app versions

  • Click on the account profile logo located in the upper corner of the display.

You can change this setting by tapping on the box.
