Chrome can’t update on Android

Google acknowledges the existence of a problem in the manual update of google chrome on Android According to company statements, the team is aware of a recent change in Google Play Chrome updates in some of the latest versions of Android. On affected devices, it’s often not possible to update Chrome manually by clicking update on the app page. What can be done, Google will fix it at some point

If you have the Automatic Updates from Google Play, the browser will continue to update automatically when available on your device without you having to take any further action to update Chrome Browser. The only thing you need is to have a connection to a WiFi network and that the mobile is charging so that the update of the application is carried out, among which this one is included.

What to do to fix the updates

If you want to manually install a Chrome update that’s already available, but you’re experiencing this issue in Google’s browser, you have two options to continue until this issue is fixed:

  1. If you have multiple updates pending, or at least one, you can select “Update All” from the My Apps & Games page.
  2. You can try clearing the cache and data of the Play Store, keeping in mind that this will reset some preferences that you have set in the app store.

You can also, if it’s not a problem, turn on automatic updates. If you want, you can later re-enable them, although if it is not what interests you, it is best to try the previous ways to see if you get it. However, this is not a solution for manual updates, but rather another thing you can do in case nothing else of the above works for you.
