Some Android apps will soon update even while still in use

If a player opts into the update, the new version is then downloaded in the background while the app remains running and can either be installed once it's complete or the next time the app is minimized or closed.
Google says that the PHA infection rate for "Google Play only" users is 0.09 percent, while the same figure is 0.61 percent for users who also sideloaded apps.
According to the example provided by Google, the first one - called "immediate in-app update" - will also have an on-screen pop up, letting you know that an update is available.
GOOGLE HAS ANNOUNCED some new features for the Android App Bundle tool which will allow users to carry on using apps even whilst they are updating. The second option is a flexible update, which means the user can keep using the app while the update is downloaded.
"Last December, Google launched Files Go: an app to free up space on mobile phones, find files faster and share them with others easily and quickly-even without an internet connection", states Google's announcement."Files Go was built to solve file and storage management problems for the next generation of smartphone users in countries such as India, Brazil and Nigeria". By removing the "Go" part of the name, it is indicating to users that the app is of general usefulness for any users, and not just those with super low-end devices running on spotty networks.
The API gives developers an immediate in-app update option that can be used mainly to push critical updates. But this is about to change, now that Google is introducing a new API for Android.
Right now, the in-app update API is being tested through the Android Google Chrome app and with select partnered developers, but Google plans to expand that early access program in the near future.
