FAQ

I installed an app via an APK file outside of Google Play. How do I automatically update it?
You can’t. You will have to manually install a new APK file when one becomes available. Google Play settings will only control the apps you downloaded from Google Play.

How do I get rid of the notifications while still allowing my apps to automatically update?

From the Google Play settings, there is a selection for “Notifications“. Checking it will turn notifications on, while unchecking it turns it off.
