This is the second day in a row that my Driver app is notifying me of a update for my Android phone but when I go to the Google Play Store it tells me otherwise!!!! Anyone else ever experience this? Any remedies?

It's weird though because the update was in the app store when I did the update on my tablet but I have the same issue as you when trying to update on my phone.

I also tried uninstalling, signing out, reinstalling but it's still there.

iPhone version hasn't been updated since 2/9
I do not allow auto updates on my iPhone, but checking the app store I find that here is an update dated 2/22/2017 (today) v3.143.3
Still not doing the update, too many things go wrong too often with their iOS updates.

that update was for a mandatory animal acceptance. we can no longer deny riders that have pets, no matter if we're afraid of allergic to pets, if we do, we get banned from the app

Service animals, not pets. To be sure that they are service animals there are two questions you can ask:

1) is that a service animal trained to provide a service for a disability?

2) what service as a trained to do?

Emotional support animals that are not trained to do a specific function, do not count as service animals, and are not covered under the law. There are a couple of dis reputable companies handing out so-called certifications for such animals, but these are bogus.

We do not have to accept pets. We do have to accept service animals. That is a matter of federal law as well as state law although the specifics of each State's laws on the matter very and drivers should make themselves familiar with the laws and their particular state.

Don't they eventually force you to update like they do or used to do on Android?

It has not as of yet, if/when it does I will come back and post here.
I have all my apps set to update manually because I'm tired of having issues and trying to figure out which version work better so I always stick with them until I have an issue I can't handle. The Uber driver app is the only app that I'm forced to update or at least I used to be. Thanks for the info.

Just goes to figure as soon as you talk about something it always hit you right in the face... I was thinking maybe the IRS platform didn't force you.
