Android gives you a fair amount of freedom about updates. You can turn off all updates, or limit updates to Wi-Fi downloads only. Here’s how it is done.
By default, Android apps downloaded from the Google Play Store are automatically updated. But there are some major drawbacks involved as well, and these might cause you to rethink your automatic update policy. Example, you’re connected to mobile data, and you have a monthly data limit. Also; other reasons might include that you might not have enough storage or that your phone is not brand new. Whatever the reason, here’s how you can stop automatic updates from occurring on your Android phone.
How to Turn Off Automatic App Updates on Android
Open the Google Play Store on your Android phone. Tap the profile picture. Scroll down and tap Settings.
Tap Account, Auto-update, preferences. Then tap Auto-apdate apps.
Select Don’t auto-update apps. ( 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.)
