As the rumors of Google testing Android OS 2.2 have emerged, more 2.2 goodies have slowly become available.
In the latest batch of OS 2.2 news, reports indicate that the upcoming Android update will feature automatic application updating, or at least a toggle to enable the function.
Concerns regarding whether the function will include some sort of user authentication have risen, or if the automatic update will happen without any user intervention. The concern here is if users would rather have one type of app update automatically but not have another type of app automatically update.
In any case, the feature is too early to make any kind of assumption, but if (or when) released, the feature will at least assist users in not having to update applications one-by-one.
