Some Android apps will soon update even while still in use

  • Pearl Kelly is appearing in court on Thursday to protest the DWP's decision to cut her benefit

"To address this, we're launching an In-app Updates API". While developers can pick the full-screen experience option to push critical updates, there is also a flexible update option that lets users keep using the app while the update is downloaded and installed. Google aims to support the new form factors in Android.

Cuthbertson noted that the In-App Updates API is still in testing with Android's early access partners. The former doesn't boot you out per se, but the update window takes up the entire screen, so you're essentially prevented from using the app while the update occurs. "[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". Well, despite the announcement, there's no exact time given by Google as to when we will see the API working on Android devices.

The tool, very appropriately dubbed the Google Play in-app update API, gives developers the ability to display dialog boxes in unupdated Android games or apps that either encourage players to update their copy to the latest version and allow them to do so while the app is still running.

Its not just a simple rebranding, Google also redesigned the app to put your content front and center. Another neat reveal coming out of the Android Dev Summit, however, is a feature that will allow users to continue using Android apps while they're being updated. Google hasn't announced an official date that it will get wide release but said the API will be available to all developers soon.
