Krafton has already rolled out the latest Battlegrounds Mobile India 1.5 update in the Google Play Store already.

If there is an option, just tap on it and wait for the new update to download and install on its own.

Additionally, the latest 1.5 update for Battlegrounds Mobile India is near about 422MB in size. However, one thing to note is that the size of the update may differ slightly from device to device. High end devices will most likely get a more buffed update. Once the update has downloaded, players need to install the in-game resource pack and maps manually.
