Users not being informed of new release

I have a quick question, sorry if this was responded to previously.
Whenever I issue a new release of my app (which is approved by Google), I do not receive a notification on my phone (as an user) from the app to update to the latest release…I thought this is somehow done automatically? Is it perhaps a setting in my phone that needs to be changed?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!


I tried google “announce new product release.”

  • mass media;
  • social media;
  • email marketing.

Thank you, however I am actually asking about something else…My question relates to the users of my app not being notified/asked by their phone of a new release so they can update it accordingly…
Hope someone can clarify for me.

Hi @Bogdan :wave:,

Did you check out Google’s documentation? :point_down:

Normally if the User has set automatic updates (by default), this should update automatically in the background without notification.

Thank you for your response, your message directed me to the actual setting I was looking for, which was setting automatic updates. This is done in Google Play store menu settings (as seen here: . My phone had it on but only on wifi and I had my wifi turned off, so I guess this is why I was not getting the auto-update, but I still haven’t figured out why I did not receive a notification that an app is ready to be updated…still looking at it, but now my question has been answered, so thanks a lot! :hugs:
