How to turn ON and OFF the Automatic Android apps update?

The Android apps are changing the way we are living. We rely on these apps from setting alarms to staying connected with our family, friends and other beloved members. All these apps are set to update automatically via Wi-Fi to get the latest features. For some of you, they get updated automatically even while using the mobile data. So, if you are looking for a way to turn off the automatic updates, you are at the right place right now.

How to turn off the automatic updates for specific apps?

  • Open Google PlayStore and tap the hamburger icon in the top-left and select ‘My Apps & Games’.
  • Swipe to find the app that you have chosen. Instead of swiping, you may also enter the name of the app in the search bar.
  • After landing in the app page, tap the three-dot icon in the top-right.
  • Uncheck Auto-update.
  • That’s it. Hereafter, the PlayStore will stop updating this app automatically.
  • Repeat the same steps for other apps for which you don’t want to update.

How to turn off automatic updates for all the apps in Android?

  • Open Google PlayStore.
  • Tap the hamburger icon in the top-left and choose Settings.
  • Tap Auto-Update apps under General.
  • Select the first option: Do not auto-update apps.

How to enable automatic updates on Android?

  • Open Google PlayStore.
  • Tap the hamburger icon in the top-left and choose Settings.
  • Tap Auto-Update apps under General.
