Applications are essential to the functioning of a system. Most of the times Google pushes updates to its Play Services or the search app which helps change a lot of aspects including the launcher and security vulnerability. That is why it is important to keep the apps on our devices up to date. Updating the apps to their latest versions not only offer better and improved features and reliability but also ensures better security.
Apparently, Google is looking forward to taking the next step in order to make the process of updating the apps easier. Google will begin testing updates for the pre-loaded apps on the devices without a Google account over the next few months.
Google has started sending email to developers stating that the devices running Android Lollipop(API 21) or higher will be able to update their applications even if users are not signed into a Google account. Users will be able to opt out of the feature any time they want, nevertheless, it is not a recommended step. Most of these developers already target users running API 21 or higher on their devices.

The newest addition in the Google Play Store will be taking another step to improve user’s security. It is also aiming to give users a better experience in the apps they use. As always, Google is going the gradual rollout way. We also don’t know how opting out of the feature will be presented: on the device or from the developer console.
