To update Google Chrome we have to follow the same steps that we would follow to update WhatsApp, Facebook or Instagram. Everything is done from Google Play and the path is as follows:

  1. Open Google Play Store.
  2. Swipe from the left frame of the mobile to the right to display the menu.
  3. Go to “My applications and games”.
  4. Go to “Updates” if the application does not take you there automatically.

There they will appear all applications that have a new version. You can update them one by one but our recommendation is that you do it in batch. To do this, click on “Update all” and voila, they will be downloaded automatically. You don’t need to have the application open, you can close it and do something else while the download is taking place in the background.

Automatic Apps

An easier option to keep the applications updated and be able to forget about it is turn on automatic updates. That way, when an app receives an update, Google Play will download it without your intervention in any way. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Play.
  2. Pull down the menu by swiping to the right.
  3. Go to “Settings”.
  4. Go to “Update automatic applications”.
  5. Select “WiFi only”.
