    Default Update Apps without WiFi

    I'm having a senior moment here. I know there is a setting somewhere that you can check that says to only update/download only when WiFi is available. For the life of me, I cannot find that setting.
    Who can tell me where it is please?

    Go to the Play Store, tap the upper left corner, select Settings, select Auto-update apps, choose "Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only".

    OK, thanks. I have it set to Auto-Update at any time, but I have an app that has been trying to download for about 1.5 days now. At first it was just saying Waiting on Network. The progress bar hasn't even begun to show any percentage of download.

    Cancel the update/download and try again. Updates get stuck sometimes.

    I've tried that several times as rebooting phone. Still same thing.

    Have you tried signing out of the Play Store and then signing back in?

    How do you sign out?
    I don't even see a log/sign out button.

    Settings > accounts > Google and remove the account you are using in the play store

    Will that remove my Gmail account that the phone syncs with?

    Yes, but you can add it again afterwards.
