    There have been 2 updates in the past week or so, yet the version number is still the 5.1 that ends in 5967. It says to update, obviously, but no new version. My father's phone has a newer version, but mine and my mother's are still stuck on this version. I've tried to clear cache/data for Play Services and Play Store which didn't resolve this. Any ideas?

    That's the latest version? Do you have any idea why it's not being pushed to me? I usually like to wait for it to push.

    I figured. Just thought it has been taking way longer than it should.

    Anytime Google pushes updates to it's apps Android Police will generally have the apk file within hours for you to download....so if that kinda thing is important, they're another good site to follow. I have IFTTT set up to send me a link every time they post a new one.

    I'm not sure what IFTTT is.

    It's a website/App that does simple automations (it stands for If This Then That)....like if I take photo, automatically send it to my Dropbox; if it's supposed to rain tomorrow, send me a notification to bring an umbrella; etc.

    Neat. Not sure why I've never heard of this. Probably not new. Lol

    Also sometimes you can go to the web version of the play store and it will say "installed" on the button. If you click "installed" many times it will go ahead and push the update. You might have to click the button more than once. I have had to do that with Facebook before. IIRC, it will tell you either you have the newest or it will download the update to you phone. That will show up sometimes with one click, if not click a few more times until that shows up.

    The only bad thing with that is it might not be the latest. I was experiencing issues so I had to backtrack and redo my settings.

    It will push the latest update they have loaded.

    When I was Facebook Beta testing, FB would have loaded an update and it wouldn't show as an update for us in the app. If we went to the browser and did the above steps, it would push the most recent update they had to us. It was an ongoing problem with Facebook and a couple of other developers where the update didn't show until much later. We just always knew the minute FB put up a new update, because they told the beta testers. Some of the developers told us that was an ongoing issue with the Play Store, not showing the update to all users at the same time it was available.

    Going to the web version and doing the above, was the work around that Google gave to Facebook to tell us. It almost always worked. The one time it didn't work for me, I went and tried a few minutes later and it worked then.

    Unfortunately this latest update did not fix the issue I am having. I'm beginning to think Google isn't going to fix it.

    Are you having a specific issue with Gmail?

    I am. It shows that I have messages in my spam folder, but when I go into the folder, there's nothing there. I can search for label:spam to delete then or use my laptop. It's been doing this for the past several releases (5.0 I believe). Gmail is synced so it's not that.

    Hmm.. That's odd. I can access the spam messages on my Gmail app.

    I wish I could. No one seems to know why this is happening. It was fine before.

    Have you tried going to the app manager, force stopping Gmail, uninstalling updates, clear data let it update again and log in?

    And weird.. You could go to settings and then labels and then tap on the spam label and see if syncing it will help that.

    Only suggestion I have left.

    I have noticed that while switching between versions, the Spam folder and All Mail I will set to Sync All and it won't show until I back out and close it and go back in. I wonder if that is causing the issue.

    I don't know, it could be. I don't keep my Gmail open, I deal with whatever and then close it until it is needed. If that is the issue, I wouldn't notice since I always close mine out.

    I just use the back button. I rarely go into recent apps and close it from there.
