Updating CommCare Software for Android Smartphones

Dimagi releases upgrades to CommCare Mobile approximately once a month.  We We recommend upgrading to the latest version of CommCare whenever possible.


Android phones will upgrade to the new version automatically if the "update automatically" checkbox is selected in the Google Play store.  If your CommCare application is not automatically updating to the latest version, find the CommCare application in the google play store/marketplace and click on "update."

It is not necessary to update the CommCare version on HQ under Application Settings- just leave it in its default state unless advised differently by a Dimagi engineer.

Should I choose "automatically update" in the Play Store?
