If the app is deployed from Google Play (aka, I is not a custom written app) it should be updated automatically.  I don't think you can even stop the updates.

It works exactly the same on Android as it does on iOS.

 

Some gotchas to keep an eye out for:

  • Some manufacturers configure their devices to only update over WiFi by default.  If you have mobile data only connected device this stops updates.
  • You need to use Device Owner mode to be assured the update will push out.  In BYOD mode it is more like asking the device "pretty please" to upgrade.
  • Devices may apply additional state tests when deciding to do an update.  For example, they may decide not to do updates when the battery is less than 80%.  This is manufacturer dependent.
