In-App Update Library for Android


The In-App Update Library simplifies the integration of in-app updates in Android applications. It provides a straightforward way to check for updates and prompt users to update your app using Google Play's core app update features. This library is ideal for ensuring that your users always have the latest version of your app with minimal hassle.


  • Easy integration of in-app updates.
  • Supports immediate update flows.
  • Simplified API for checking and starting updates.


Getting Started


  • Android Studio
  • An Android project with minimum SDK version 23.


To use the In-App Update Library in your project, follow these steps:

Step 1: Add the JitPack repository to your build file

Add JitPack to your project's build file. Open your root build.gradle file and add the following to the repositories section:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url '' }

Step 2: Add the dependency

Next, add the dependency for the In-App Update Library in your module's build.gradle file:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.saurabhthesuperhero:InAppUpdate-Kotlin-Lib:8.0.2'

After these steps, sync your project with the Gradle files to ensure that the library is properly imported into your project.


  1. Initialization:

    In your MainActivity or any other Activity from which you want to start the update process, initialize the InAppUpdateManager:

    import com.simplifymindfulness.inappupdate_library.InAppUpdateManager
    import androidx.activity.result.ActivityResultLauncher
    import androidx.activity.result.contract.ActivityResultContracts
    import android.os.Bundle
    import androidx.activity.ComponentActivity
    import androidx.activity.compose.setContent
    import androidx.compose.material3.MaterialTheme
    import androidx.compose.material3.Surface
    import androidx.compose.ui.Modifier
    import androidx.compose.ui.layout.fillMaxSize
    class MainActivity : ComponentActivity() {
        private lateinit var activityResultLauncher: ActivityResultLauncher<IntentSenderRequest>
        override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
            activityResultLauncher = registerForActivityResult(ActivityResultContracts.StartIntentSenderForResult()) { result ->
                // Handle the result of the update flow here
            InAppUpdateManager.init(this, activityResultLauncher)
            setContent {
                InAppUpdateKotlinLibTheme {
                    Surface(modifier = Modifier.fillMaxSize(), color = MaterialTheme.colorScheme.background) {
  2. Handling Update Results:

    Implement the logic to handle the result of the update flow in the registerForActivityResult callback.
