    Can someone explain the setting or trigger for restricting updates while away from wifi?

    I don't want to use up my data on 4G updating any apps.

    I only want to update apps when using wifi.

    Uncheck automatic updating then check for updates only when your on wifi... Other than that their may be a setting inside the play store settings

    Thanks... after some fumbling around... this is the answer I was looking for:
    "On your mobile device, go to Play Store and tap on Settings.
    Make sure that Auto-update apps is checked.
    More importantly, make sure that Update over Wi-Fi only is also checked."

    I keep auto update off. That way I can review an update first and then update, either over wifi or 4g.

    Well, I pride myself on laziness... and so, the sloth that I am wants technology to work for him, and not the other way around.
    Great thread, mates! Thanks so much!

    Believe it or not:
    Since i enabled "While charging only" for Google Photo uploads, my app updates also will be excuted when the battery is charged !

    Try the following:

    - Google Photo - Settings - Back up & sync
    - Choose folders to back up...
    - Enable "While eharging only"

    Hope this hepls.
