We've also redesigned the user experience to make sure that the content of your mobile phone is the focus when you use the app, all while keeping the same functions and playfulness that people love. In flexible app update function, it allows Android users to keep using the app even while it is being updated.

Thanks to a new API that Google announced this week during the Android Dev Summit, developers will soon have the power to force users to update apps, which we think is a good thing.

In the second immediate option, users are given a full-screen update message for forcefully updating their apps. Originally created to help Android users in certain countries that do not have a lot of storage on their mobile devices, the app was quickly adopted worldwide.

What Cuthbertson is referring to is the In-App Updates API, which gives developers two new ways to update their apps: immediate and flexible.

If you don't already have the app, you can download Files by Google free of charge from the Play Store. But this is about to change, now that Google is introducing a new API for Android.

Android's announcement of its Foldables technology was also a summit highlight, with the company highlighting its support for the forthcoming Samsung device that was previewed this week by Samsung Senior Vice President Justin Denison at the 2018 Samsung Developer Conference. If a player opts into the update, the new version is then downloaded in the background while the app remains running and can either be installed once it's complete or the next time the app is minimized or closed.
