Hello MIUIers,

In order to give users and Android developers more controls to ensure the App compatibility across all devices, Google has added new In-app Updates API to the Android system. Google has introduced new tools and features at Android Developer Summit. Google has added widely requested features in the latest In-app Updates API.

The new API gives developers two new ways to update the apps: flexible and immediate. In flexible app update function, it allows Android users to keep using the app even while it is being updated. 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.

In the second immediate option, users are given a full-screen update message for forcefully updating their apps. The prompt comes when the user starts an app, they must update it before using it.

Talking about the recent updates, Android product management, and developer relations Stephanie Saad Cuthberston said, “This is something that developers have asked us for a long time is — say you own an app and you want to make sure the user is running the latest version.” Google director of engineering Aurash Mahbood said, the new API is under tests for Google Chrome.


Google also rolled out Instant discovery that allows to easily adopt the new kind of apps. Even Google has increased the limit of Instant Apps to 10 MB for Try Now button on the Play Store.

Along with the new updates API, Google official rolled out support for foldable devices on the eve of celebrating ten-years of Android. Well, despite the announcement, there’s no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices. Overall, it’s a good package of announcements that Google went live at Android Developers summit. Along with users, App developers will also benefit from the latest In-app updates API.
