Here we are going to learn about In-app updates for Android apps.
The In-app updates are a Google Play Core libraries feature that prompts active users to update the app when there is an app update available on the Google Play Store.
The in-app updates feature is supported on devices running Android 5.0 (API level 21) or higher. Additionally, in-app updates are only supported for Android mobile devices, Android tablets, and Chrome OS devices.
When the app users keep the app up to date on their devices, they can try new features, as well as benefit from performance improvements and bug fixes.
Although some users enable background updates when their device is connected to an unmetered connection, other users might need to be reminded to install updates and for that In-app updates are introduced.
With In-app updates, you can easily prompt the user to update the app. While updating the app user can interact with the application, isn’t it great 🙂
Your app can use the Google Play Core libraries to support the following UX flows for in-app updates:
Flexible updates provide background download and installation with graceful state monitoring. This UX flow is appropriate when it’s acceptable for the user to use the app while downloading the update. For example, you might want to encourage users to try a new feature that’s not critical to the core functionality of your app.
Immediate updates are fullscreen UX flows that require the user to update and restart the app in order to continue using it. This UX flow is best for cases where an update is critical to the core functionality of your app. After a user accepts an immediate update, Google Play handles the update installation and app restart.
Thanks for reading.
Happy Coding 🙂
