  2. Select your profile icon which is on the top-right corner of the screen
  3. Select Manage apps & device, 
  4. Then click on the Updates available option. Now you will see a list of apps that needs updation
  5. Select the Update option next to the app which you would like to update

This is faster indeed, when you enable the automatic updates option. You will not even know and when the updates are there, the apps will automatically get downloaded. This way, you will save yourself from constantly checking on the Google Play Store for any updates.

  1. Open the Google Play Store 
  2. click on your profile icon (top-right corner)
  3. Tap on Settings

You will also find ‘Over any network option’, which will enable the device to get updates only when the device is either with Wi-Fi and mobile data. 

Similarly, if you want to disable the automatic updates altogether, then you have to select Don’t auto-update apps in the store and this will stop.
