To uninstall recent updates from other apps, just repeat the same steps to get back to the Settings and Apps menu and then select the next app that you’d like to uninstall updates from.

If you don’t see any option to uninstall updates on certain apps, it’s likely because this feature or command is not supported in those apps. In that case, uninstalling and reinstalling the app can be considered an alternative solution. This however, only applies to downloaded or third-party apps. For pre-installed or built-in apps, you can disable and re-enable them instead.

Post-Update Issues In Android Apps

Installing the latest version of an app doesn’t always ensure flawless app functions. Just like system updates, periodic app updates from software developers can also contain some bugs that would result in sudden app malfunctions. Thankfully, there’s always a redo command you can hit should any post-update app issue manifests on your device.

And that covers everything in this quick guide.
