We continue to answer questions related to the Android operating system. Today we will talk about how to update applications and games. Just remind you that you can’t remove updates with a few exceptions. Therefore, before updating the application, read the reviews, the update may have been unsuccessful.
Let’s get started. We are connected to the Internet and go to Google Play.
You can find the application you would like to update by searching on Google Play or using the My Applications section. Consider the second way.
We do a swipe from left to right from the left frame, after which a menu will appear. In it, select “My applications and games”.
You will see two tabs: “Installed” and “All.” The first tab displays the applications that are installed on the device that you are holding. In the “All” tab, you will see all the applications that are installed on all devices without exception, where this account is used. Stay on the Installed tab.
Let’s say you need to update the Yandex.Browser browser. We click on the application and go to the browser page. Next, click on the “Update” button.
If necessary, grant permissions to the application:
Download and installation of updates is automatic.
As soon as the application is updated, the “Open” button will appear. This means that the latest version of the application is used..
Remember that you can update all applications at once. To do this, go back to the “Installed” tab and click “Update All.” In this case, all applications for which updates are available will be updated. Remember that this takes time, and a large amount of traffic can be spent, so we recommend updating applications via unlimited Internet, for example, at home.
If you want the application to update automatically, go to the menu and select “Settings”.
Click “Auto-update apps” and select “Always”.
Now applications will be automatically updated when connected to the Internet.
