Along with users, App developers will also benefit from the latest In-app updates API.

For now, the new In-app Updates API will only be available to Android developers who are early access partners. Google has introduced new tools and features at Android Developer Summit. The second option is a flexible update, which means the user can keep using the app while the update is downloaded.

But Google noted that the app has grown to 30 million monthly users, some of which were using powerful phones with plenty of storage. "[But] we've noticed that people across the globe are using it, no matter what type of mobile phone they have or how fast their internet connection is". You can completely customise the update flow so it feels like part of your app.

Acosta also tweeted a video of a Secret Service official taking his White House credential from him. "I don't know", he said. He said she was rude for interrupting another reporter, though he did briefly answer one of Ryan's questions.

Talking about the recent updates, Android product management, and developer relations Stephanie Saad Cuthberston said, "This is something that developers have asked us for a long time is - say you own an app and you want to make sure the user is running the latest version". There is no specific date mentioned by Google as to when we will see the API in use on Android apps.

Google's new contract for Android vendors that want its core apps aims to bring the industry in line with Samsung's security patching model.

Android's announcement of its Foldables technology was also a summit highlight, with the company highlighting its support for the forthcoming Samsung device that was previewed this week by Samsung Senior Vice President Justin Denison at the 2018 Samsung Developer Conference.
