Why is Chrome not Updating? (6 Major Reasons)

I have also suffered from this problem several times, and I have noticed some of the major causes of why it is not updating. Here I have mentioned all the topics one by one-

Network Problems:

One of the major causes of not updating your google chrome is Network problems. And if you have network problems, then your device will be unable to update chrome because to update your chrome, you have to spend a good amount of data.

So, whenever you update chrome, please check the wifi connection or data connection which will troubleshoot your network problem.

If it doesn’t work for you, then activate the airplane mode within your device to troubleshoot this problem.

Don’t use Wifi Data:

When you update your google chrome account, always try to accomplish this process via mobile data. And if you are using wifi data, then it sometimes brings some faults.

Other Apps:

Well, the other apps can also bring the same problem for you. I mean that if you only update the chrome browser and do not update other apps, you will also suffer from this problem.

Sometimes within the play store, the apps were not updated; therefore, in this case, I want to suggest you update your browser from google. Just type chrome update in google and update your chrome browser.

Activation of Bluetooth:

Whenever you want to update something, always turn off your Bluetooth device. Because the activation of Bluetooth creates some problems in the adaptation process.

So, whenever you want to update something, always turn off your Bluetooth if it is open and disconnect any devices if there is any connection with your device.

Cache Files:

Generally, when any users access something on the internet, at that time, some cache files are also stored on the browser and the device. These cache files are not useful for us, therefore, it is always a very good choice to delete or clears the cache data.
