    I bought an app and we made an update of it to change the Admob to my code. The problem is that the majority of the users didn't update this app so they are still using the Admob code of the previous owner.

    Is there any posibility of setting the app for example in the Google Play Console to make an automatic update in the users devices to every active users use the latest version?

    Someone told me that if the app is hosted in a own / online server we can set up this. Is this true?

    Can you please tell me how can I make that all the users use the latest version of the app?

    I think you would need to already have code in the app currently installed on the phones in order to prompt the users to update to the latest version.

    That's true. And even then, the user could decline.
