Update Private Apps

An app can receive updates if it's installed on a user’s device and is available according to the device's policy. If an app is removed from the device's policy, this device will no longer receive updates for that app.

On-device Update Settings

You can enforce the update preference by setting Auto Update Policy in the device's policy.

If you set Auto Update Policy to choiceToTheUser or leave it unset, then the device user can set update preferences for their apps from the managed Google Play app. The recommendation is for users to leave auto updates enabled for all their apps.

Note that devices check for auto updates daily. Because auto updates are optimized for battery life, data usage, and user experience, it can take up to a few days for a device to receive an update automatically.
