Below are listed 5 common scenarios our customers encounter when updating their applications.
Check out this article for the configurations available for app updates.
Ensure updates are delivered regularly
- Set a maintenance window.
- If your devices are not usually connected to a Wi-Fi network during the maintenance window, then set the network constraint to update apps over Any network.
With these settings in place, apps will be updated within 48 hours from the time the developer publishes the update.
Prevent apps from updating while the device is in use
Disable app updates completely
Disabling app updates isn’t generally recommended, but you may want to do this on a temporary basis to prevent any unexpected change on devices during a critical period of time. In your WizyEMM console, there should be a setting to disable app updates.
Remember to re-enable app updates after the critical period of time elapses.
Validate the new version of an app before deploying it
Deliver a critical app update as quickly as possible
Frequently asked questions
Can I prevent app updates on a work profile?
Android devices maintain a single version of an app, even if the app is installed in both a personal profile and work profile. This means apps installed in both profiles are updated at the same time. As a result, it’s not possible to prevent app updates on a work profile since apps can be updated from the personal profile.
Can I choose which version of an app to install?
No, you can’t choose which version of an app to install or to update to. Only the latest available version of an app can be installed.
Can I disable updates for Google Play Store and Google Play Services?
No, you can’t disable updates for Google Play Store and Google Play Services. Updates to these apps are critical to the security and reliability of devices.
