How to manually update apps on Android

Suppose you know that some of your apps have just received new versions, but you don’t think your phone Android have them installed. Well, you can install an application updates by doing the following:

Step 1: open the app Google Play.

Step 2: Press the button Menu located in the upper left corner of the screen (represented by three horizontal lines in a row down).

Step 3: press My apps and games. The tab Upgrades It will open by default and display the applications that have available updates.

Step 4: press Update all.

Done, your applications have been updated. If there are no updates available for any of your applications, you will see the message: “No updates available” on the Updates tab in the My apps and games menu.

How to automatically update apps on Android

Assuming you don’t have the time or desire to update applications manually, you can choose to update them automatically. Automatic updates should be on by default, but if they aren’t, here’s what you can do.

Step 1: open the Google Play app.

Step 2: Press the button Menu located in the upper left corner of the screen (represented by three horizontal lines in a row down).

Step 3: press Setting.

Step 4: press Update apps automatically and then select one of the available options (we recommend choosing Only via wifi). Finally, press Ready.

Your apps will now automatically update as soon as developers release new versions.

How to update only some apps automatically

If you do not want to automatically update all your applications, you can choose to update some specific ones – like the ones you use most often, for example – but you must make sure to deactivate the option Update apps automatically. For this you must follow the same steps as above, but in the end, select Don’t update apps automatically and then do the following:

Step 1: open the app Google Play.

Step 2: enter the name of the app that you want to update automatically in the bar Search apps and games, and select the app once you find it.

Step 3: Press the button Plus located in the upper right corner of the screen (represented by three dots in a row down) and press the box Update automatically.

Repeat this process for all the apps you want to update automatically.
