Re: What is Google Smart App Updates
Google Smart App Updates is a kind of new service Google is about to launch for Google Play users. Actually for Android users. As an explanation, youi might be knowing that applications installed on your Android Smartphone or tablet gets update time to time. You also get notification in your device's notification bar saying your so and so apps have updates. And when you start updating them, if you might have noticed, they start downloading the application again.
For example, if you have Chrome installed on your Android device, and if it gets update, you will see that Google Play start downloading complete 19MB again (that is the actual size of the app). isn't it very irritating ? I mean, you again spend your bandwith, time, battery etc while updating any application.
So, with the help Google Smart App Update, we can now get rid of this problem. From now onwards, if we update any of our installed application, it will only download the required parts from the update to make the application run at latest version. For example, it will no more download entire 19Mb, but only about 1 MB or so that is actually required to make the app at latest version. This is really good.
