This, and the fact that you're now allowed to use the app until the update is complete, suggests that this method will be used for critical updates like bug fixes and security hole plugs.

Google announced today that their Android Files Go storage app is being rebranded to the new name of Files by Google and that in less than a year, they have 30 million monthly users all over the world.

Google announced the In-app Updates API at its annual Android Dev Summit - alongside support for foldable displays - while celebrating 10 years of the OS. "[But] we've noticed that people across the globe are using it, no matter what type of mobile phone they have or how fast their internet connection is".

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.

Brad Pitt Reportedly Concerned Custody Battle Will 'Damage' Kids
The private judge will also have to handle the former couple's property settlement, given they don't have a prenup. Pitt responded with a filing of his own that November, seeking physical and legal custody of the children.

Google is enabling users to have up-to-date Android apps all the time - without making any efforts to download them by visiting Google Play. Though there's a catch, the app downloads the update when a user is using it, but it gets installed when you reopen the app.

"We've heard that you'd like more controls to ensure that users are running the latest and greatest version of your app", said Stephanie Cuthbertson, Director of Product Management, Android, in a blog post. Developers will also be able to customize the update flow so it feels like it is part of the app.

Overall, it's a good package of announcements that Google went live at Android Developers summit.
