Despite all its great features and flexibility, Android has its flaws. One of them being Automatic Updates. Although I love to have all my apps up-to-date (latest version), at times the updates are pretty much useless, and provide no added benefit over the previous version. Despite this, due to the fact that Android’s auto update feature is turned on by default, Android goes ahead an updates the apps any way. If you’re like me and have more than 15+ apps on your device, this whole auto update process can be a huge battery killer. Fortunately, there is a way for you to manually turn off this auto update feature .via. Google Play Store, and in this blog post, I’m going to show you exactly how you can accomplish just that.

So, without future ado, here are the instructions on how to turn off the auto update feature on your Android Devices:

Step 1: Click on the Play Store app icon on your Android device.

Step 2: Click on the drop down menu icon at the top left hand corner – it’s the icon with the three small horizontal lines.

Step 3: Click on the settings option.

Step 4: Click on “Auto-update Apps” option under General Settings.

Step 5: Select “Do not auto-update apps”.

Save the settings, and boom! You’re DONE!

No more battery killing auto-updates.
