The Play Store is the hub of the entire Google and Android ecosystem. It is from here that the apps reach the smartphones and thus extend the functionalities that are available from the base.
Having this importance, it is hoped that it will not fail and that it will offer the best to users. A new bug has now been detected and is causing many app updates to be reinstalled, especially contrary to what would be expected.
A new bug in the Play Store
Failures in the Play Store are not normal or expected. Google handles the Android store very firmly, maintaining this service without any break or problem. This is certainly an essential condition for your system.
So this is a new situation that most Android users will probably not have detected yet. Discreetly and without any fuss, the apps that are updated later reappear to have a new version installed.
Android apps repeat updates
Everything appears to be going smoothly, with apps indicating they are up to date, but the truth is that after a short time they return to the list of available updates. This could be a normal step on the Play Store, were it not for the version number identical to the initial one
From what is known, this situation is really in the Play Store and not in specific apps. Both third-party apps, from external developers, and native, from Google are being affected by this abnormal and unexpected bug.
Google should soon correct the flaw
Interestingly, if the Play Store is closed in the Android app manager, the apps initially placed for update will disappear. Thus, they no longer need to be updated, as previously shown.
In fact, this bug appears to be widespread by many users, but it has a small impact. However, for those with limited data plans, it may represent abnormal data consumption that is unnecessary.
