21.2.3 Manually Downloading

Downloading updates


You can update your Android device's apps individually or allow them to be updated automatically. Keeping apps updated gives you access to the latest features and improves app security and stability. Note: If Google determines an app update will fix a critical security vulnerability, we may make certain app updates regardless of update settings in the app or on your device. For more information, please see the Google Play Terms of Service.

Set up automatic updates

To set up automatic updates for all apps on your mobile device:

  1. Open the Google Play Store app .
  2. Tap Menu Settings.
  3. Tap Auto-update apps.
  4. Select an option:
    • Auto update apps at any time: Updates apps at any time, using either Wi-Fi or mobile data.
    • Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only: Updates only when you are connected to Wi-Fi.

Note: If an account on your device has a sign-in error, apps may not update automatically.
