    Can we force the app user to update the app if a new version is available in play store?
    Please help.

    With the new Cloud Messaging feature included in Firebase, you can create a notification to all your users letting them that there is a new version avaiable ;)

    Yes, but it might be even better if the app notifies you whenever the user opens ..
    Like this one for example.

    Google Play Store should auto update the app in all the users, when you release a new version.
    There is no need for this kind of alert (and is pointless)

    Also, the Firebase notification alert could work, but only if your app is already in the new version and the updates done are after that... Old users in a version that doesn't have the Firebase integration will not receive that notification.
