Samsung Galaxy S8 How to disable Automatic App Updates

If you have installed an app via the Google Play Store on your Samsung Galaxy S8, the "Automatic App Updates" feature is enabled for this application. So you need not to worry, that the app is not up-to-date.

However, there are situations where you'd rather keep an older version of an app because it is better in the application or in its function. Here, it is recommended to disable the app's automatic app updates on the Samsung Galaxy S8.
