In Google Play Store, I have set "Auto-update apps" to "Don't auto-update apps". Still, I have apps automatically updated.

Why?

Still, I get notifications.

  • I don't use those apps but wondering if they have a setting that permits them to override Google Play selection? – beeshyams Nov 11 '18 at 12:04

    I remember that Samsung devices also have an "Samsung App Store" that can automatically update apps. Therefore updated apps don't necessarily mean that Google Play Store has installed the update. – Robert Nov 11 '18 at 13:33
  • I found "Galaxy Apps" in the Samsung folder. There I could also disable autoupdate. Lets see if that will do any good! – Anders Lindén Nov 11 '18 at 14:26
  • Experienced this myself today. A new setting seems to have been added in Playstore or maybe it was there earlier but updates are affected by this, apparently. Set App download preference to ask me everytime that seems to prevent it, though that wasn't the case earlier – beeshyams Nov 14 '18 at 13:08
  • Ok, it seems my phone ignores both settings in google play and in "Galaxy Apps". Facebook and Instagram are still automatically updated. – Anders Lindén Nov 16 '18 at 13:55

disable Facebook services. Instagram and Facebook are both auto updated by Facebook_services. welcome to no longer having control over your own personal data collecting devices.
