How to Turn Off Automatic App Updates in Android,
Android gives you a fair amount of freedom about updates. You can turn off all updates, or limit updates to Wi-Fi downloads only. You can also enable updates for only specific apps - so for example, you might want the latest versions of apps you use very frequently, but you don't want to waste bandwidth downloading updates for other apps that will be launched only once every three months.
To turn updates on or off, follow these steps:
1. Open Google Play.
2. Tap the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) on the top-left.
3. Tap Settings.
4. Tap Auto-update apps.
5. To disable automatic app updates, select Do not auto-update apps.
6. If you want to instead auto-update apps only when you're connected to a WiFi network, tap Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only in the same pop-up.
Android also lets you choose which apps you want to update automatically.
1. To turn on auto-update for any app, go to the app page in the Google Play app.
2. Tap the three vertical dots in the top right.
3. Check Auto-update.
This way, you can disable automatic updates and still keep chosen apps ready with the latest versions.
