Android Things Device Updates Sample
This application demonstrates how to interact with the device update service on
Android Things through the
UpdateManager API. By default, the system checks for
new OTA updates every few hours and applies them automatically. This example shows
you how to configure the update policy to allow an app to take more control over
the update process and monitor progress.
- Android Things compatible board
- Android Studio 2.2+
Import the project using Android Studio and deploy it to your device:
- Stage a new OTA update for your device using the Android Things Console.
- Press the Check Now button on the device to force a manual update check.
- The update status is displayed in the UI as the device downloads and verifies the new update.
- Press the Reboot Now button to reboot the device and complete the update process.
