Samsung may finally have to implement seamless updates with Android 13

What do you need to know

  • In 2016, Google introduced seamless A/B updates to make the update process easier for consumers.
  • This feature allows phones like the Pixel to install updates in the background, allowing you to still use your devices.
  • Samsung hasn’t adopted this, but the new Android 13 mandate may change that for new devices that ship with the software.

We all love updates, but sometimes they can get in the way of completing tasks. If you frequently hit the “Install Later” button in your notification, you’re not alone. However, Google has made the process a lot less tedious with A/B Seamless updates and apparently wants all Android OEMs to embrace it, including Samsung.

In a report by Mishaal Rahman, senior technical editor at Esper, Google may require Android OEMs to implement seamless A/B updates for devices shipping with Android 13.
