Google Play Store
Any android application can be found on the Google play store and it comes with every android device. If you don’t have the play store which is very rare, you can search for the Google Play store on your browser.
Switching on the auto-update setting means that your Android gadget can automatically upgrade to newer versions of the app; anytime and anywhere.
However, if you are concerned about the data implications of the auto-update, you can set your phone to update only when connected to Wi-Fi.
