Google has just announced a method with which it intends to fix the Applications that don’t work on your android phone. Yes, Google wants to put an end to the situation that occurs when an application stops working on your mobile device or presents errors continuously during its daily use.
This should be good news, and indeed it is. The problem lies in the way Google has decided to implement this. What he has in mind and has already launched is basically a notice that will tell the user that they have to update the application when they see that it gives them problems.
Yes, that’s it. The notice will tell you to update the app and you as the user will have to do it. It is not a complicated process and, in fact, what the notice will do is quickly display a drop-down that will take you to the Google Play Store where the application will be updated automatically to, initially, solve the problems.
The movement by Google is interesting, although it can and should be criticized. Yes, normally the updates arrive to solve these problems that are seen in the applications. But this does not mean that the problem can always be solved with an update, since sometimes they are just one-off situations.
Google wants to fix the problem with applications that do not work well
The failure of the application can be caused both by a lack of updates and by an optimization that has not been carried out correctly. Taking this into account, it is useless for the application to request an update if, later, there is not one. The app can crash repeatedly without an update to fix the bug.
The initiative is good, although we will have to wait to see if it can really work correctly. As long as this is not the case, it will not be worth much that the feature is available to users. In addition, Google has indicated that it is already beginning to be seen on computers with Android 7.0 or higher.
It’s clear that Google wants to put an end to a bug that annoys users using its apps, but this should come in a much more functional form than just a notice that you have to update the app. Leaving this aside, it is interesting to see this novelty that Google has done.
