Now, visit our Garena Free Fire page, where we always offer the latest version available. Does your version number match the update number on our site? In that case, your game is up to date and nothing more needs to be done.

However, if your version is lower than the one you can find on our website, you will need to download the new APK and install it. Tap the green Download button available at the end of this guide or in our app review. When the download is complete, you will receive an on-screen notification with the Open option to launch the installation of the new app. You can also find this file in your usual download folder.

How to update via Google Play

Another option is to update the app with the help of Google Play. Go into the store and find the game. If you have it previously installed, and there is a new version, the download button will have become an Update button. Tap on it and it will be updated.

Then, just tap on Open to launch the latest version of the game.

Either method is valid, but we recommend the first one as you make sure you always have the latest version available. Sometimes, Google Play is not as quick or thorough in updating its database.
