Everyone officially recommends that the apps installed in your Android phone should be updated so that the new features that can be gained with the update to the app as well as it are suggested from the security point of view.

It will not always be correct that we should always update every app installed in our android phone on google’ Playstore. This is not a clear example of yes or no which can be explained in few words it is not possible because it depends on each app.

Updating the apps on Playstore is not a difficult task where you get many options in which you can update any app separately as well as implement automatic update inside Settings>General>Auto-update app in playstore. After that each app will automatically update on the network you have selected.

New specifications are also given from time to time on the social media apps installed in the Android phone, which do not seem to be needed in such a short time. For which you can update social media apps like whatsapp, twitter, facebook, instagram, YouTube, pinterest at a large time interval.

There is a category of very essential apps in the phone which is used every day which is also called tool application, it can include music player, calculator etc. If you are missing something somewhere it is facing some bug then that particular app must be updated by visiting android’s playstore. And there is hardly any need to update these apps throughout the life time of the Android device.
