12 allows alternate app stores to update apps in the background without user interaction. Guess it is a good news for and others

@dsoft Why is Google doing this? Doesn't this harm Play Store?

@lordrishav I think it has something to do with Epic games vs Apple case. It is basically doing to prevent potential anti-trust case against it. But good for us! 😃

@dsoft
F*cking finally!
F-droid is already OK with Lineage but updates with Aurora Store were a pain in the *ss on non rooted devices!

@dsoft it works if I use Aurora Store and F-Droid too in the same time?

@gmate8
I think it should be fine. Don't know how exactly Android handles it but most operating systems (ex Debian based) assign a lock so only one package manager can install/update software at a time. I expect Android also to do something similar.
