Android: Google Play Store hides app updates; have been completely removed for some users



at google play store there are over 2.5 million apps and some of them are likely to be updated quite regularly with new features or bug fix updates. Google has done a lot in recent years to hide these updates as much as possible, and now it’s taking another big step in this direction: changelogs and information about the latest update are being removed from many devices.

Android apps obtained from the Play Store are usually updated fully automatically in the background and do not require user intervention. But the fact that you can trust it in most cases does not automatically mean that you are not interested in it as a user. That’s exactly what the Google Play Store team seems to be assuming, because information about app updates is increasingly being hidden and almost completely removed from some users.

There are many user reports and changes are expressed in different ways: some have lost the list of latest updates, some don’t see any changelog, and for others it’s not even possible to see when an app was last updated. However, the latter can be an important criteria for applications for which you have to pay money. Changelogs are also interesting for some apps and unfortunately they are completely hidden in the Android app. On the web, they remain accessible to all users.

It must be said that many developers, including Google, have often not maintained this update section. Such actions mean that even fewer developers bother and one day you may delete everything…
