There are some apps like Facebook that I don’t want to update. And frequently I see a notification in app and in Play Store for its update.

Please let me know how to get rid of update of some specific apps.

Update Notification on Play Store

enter image description here

I don't want to upgrade Facebook app but every time I see "upgrade" notification on Facebook app. Recently I did reset my device and before reset, I upgraded Facebook but after upgrade, some options were missing in app. That's why I don't want to upgrade it again.

You could just go to Playstore and select the app you'd like to not auto update. When you click the 3 dots(overflow icon) at the top right uncheck auto update.

Apps nowadays though have started implementing a policy where you can't use the app if you haven't downloaded the update.

  • I already did this. There is no auto but I don't want to see the name of those apps that I don't want to update, under Updates. Apart from this, even in facebook app, I see update notification and it tries to force me to update facebook.
