The primary aim of the app is to help users to free up space on their phones, and today Google announces that it not only has a new name, but also a new look.
We've heard that you'd like more controls to ensure that users are running the latest and greatest version of your app.
In the meantime, Google published "Android Enterprise Security", a white paper detailing the new enterprise-centric security features that have been added to Android after Pie's release in August.
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.
As detailed in the Android Dev Summit, The API comes in two flavors: immediate and flexible. 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.
In the second immediate option, users are given a full-screen update message for forcefully updating their apps. With this, you can receive a notice from the app that an update is recommended, though, you can continue using the app normally while it updates in the background. Google has added widely requested features in the latest In-app Updates API.
Google has also announced that in less than a year, the app has a whopping 30 million monthly users, which I am sure is earning Google some $$$.
Overall, it's a good package of announcements that Google went live at Android Developers summit.
