How to install Google system updates

Google system updates are automatically installed on all affected products by default. Each user can change their preferences by entering:

  1. Settingsand then Google.
  2. Other and then System Services Updates.

However, disabling does not prevent system updates from sources other than Google (i.e. device manufacturer, carrier), nor app updates via the Play Store. In addition, the Mountain View giant can update system services even when automatic updates are turned off where this is necessary to resolve serious security issues or to comply with legal obligations.
