Google Play is less restrictive than Apple when it comes to updating apps.
Updating your apps distributed via Google Play can be a tricky task, but it is important to follow Google’s guidelines to remain compliant. According to Google Play’s guidelines, apps must not modify, replace or update themselves using any method apart from Google Play’s own update mechanism. This means that downloading executable code, such as dex, JAR, or .so files, from a source apart from Google Play is not permitted.
By following these guidelines and using tools like the Capgo Capacitor plugin, you can ensure that your app updates are compliant with Google Play’s policies, and that your app remains available to users on the platform. Keep in mind that it’s always a good idea to double-check the latest version of Google’s policies to make sure you’re following them correctly.
