You can click on the ” View version” to view the changelog. And then you can click on “update now” to automatically update the plugin to the latest version.

Make sure you have activated the plugin with your license key, otherwise you may receive a message saying “Automatic update is unavailable for this plugin.” See our tutorial on how to install the Perfmatters plugin.
