The latest version of the Android software suite is free for Apple and Google devices.
The new update to Android 4.4 KitKat, released by Google this week, removes the ability to download new versions of Android apps.
Instead, developers now have to opt in to receive updates to their apps from Google.
The update is free of charge for existing Android users and anyone who owns an Android smartphone.
Google has said it will offer developers a “limited number of free Android apps.”
However, users will need to be running the latest version in order to get them.
Google says it plans to support Android 5.0 Lollipop with new apps.
The update also removes the “always-on” setting that lets you turn off Android updates.
Users of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be the first to get the update.
A handful of other Samsung devices are also getting the update as well.
Apple and Google are still working on Android 5, and the updates will be rolled out to new devices in the coming weeks.
