PUBG Mobile was in maintenance mode for a few hours, to push this new update. Many users have started getting an update notification as soon as the maintenance was done. If you still haven’t got the PUBG Mobile 0.9.0 update then go to the Google Play Store & update your game. The PlayStore update is 608 MB & when you open the game, it will ask you for another 11 MB in-game update. Once you are updated, you can simply run the game to see the new changes.

In case, you are unable to see an update then repair your PUBG Mobile Game from the initial loading screen & then re-run the game. You’ll definitely see the update after that.
