Updated February 23, 2023: We have updated the rollout timeline and provided additional information. Thank you for your patience.
Microsoft Teams now maintains an index of all of the apps (and the corresponding versions) a user has consented to. Using this index, an app is automatically updated in real time everywhere it is installed for the user. After the user updates the app in any one context, the updated version is available in all other installed contexts, without any other user action.

2023-02-25MC How AffectWith the simplified app update experience, apps that require new permissions must be manually updated. After the app is updated in one place, it is updated everywhere that has the matching permissions. An app with an update that doesn't require new permissions automatically updates without any explicit user action.
With the simplified app update experience, apps are automatically updated based on the admin policies defined by you.


For apps that require users to accept new permissions, the app details page has a What's new tab that highlights any changes to the app. This tab mentions any required updates to permissions.


Users can keep their apps updated to the latest version by upgrading just one time. Badging appears beside Manage your apps at the bottom of the Apps pane, and beside the Apps tab on the Manage team page.


Apps with pending updates are automatically sorted to the top in the Manage your apps pane.
Admins can set policies for app installation and if an app that the admin has pre-installed for their organization has an app update, the app will be automatically updated unless there are changes to RSC permissions or if app developers make one or more the following changes to their apps (Role of an admin in upgrading Teams apps):
Add a bot. Change the ID of the bot using the botId property.
Change the isNotificationOnly property of an existing bot that may change the bot's notifications.
Change SupportsCalling, SupportsVideo, and SupportsFiles properties of an existing bot to add capability to call, play video, and upload or download files.
Add or remove permissions in authorization.
Add or remove a messaging extension, add a group tab, add a connector, or add a channel.
Change parameters in the webApplicationInfo in the manifest file.
