Do you care about app changelogs, or do you completely ignore them?

Google Play Store changelog section

Whenever an app gets an update, you can find what the new version contains through the app’s changelog in the Google Play Store. For new apps that you haven’t downloaded, you have to navigate all the way to the bottom of the “About This App” section to find the “What New” option that contains the changelog. However, if you’re already using an app, its changelog appears right on top when you open it on the Play Store.

In 2019, Google got rid of Play Store notifications that show up when apps automatically update. Thankfully, it reversed the decision in 2020 and brought back that notification. This usually prompts one to go and check the changelog of an app and see the added features. You can also switch on a setting in the Play Store to notify you when updates are available for an app, another helpful way of finding out when your apps are getting a new version.
