Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Deactivate Automatic app updates

If you have downloaded and installed many apps from the Google Play Store on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, then these apps are updated periodically by the developer. Every time a newer version of the app is available on the Google Play Store, it is automatically updated on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. This process is called "Automatic App update". This setting is set within the Google Play store from stock on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and is meant to help to keep your apps up to date.

Now it may be that you do not want to use the constant updates. In this case we will show you in this article how you can disable the automatic app updates. Proceed as follows:

Open on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge the Google Play Store. Within this, tap at the top left on the three horizontal lines, to display the menu. Then select "Settings".

  • Do not auto-update apps
  • Auto-update apps at any time. Data charges may apply
  • Auto-Update apps over Wi-Fi only

Select the top item in order to disable the automatic updates on your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Finished! Keep in mind that you must release from now on all updates manually, so they get installed.
