    I have a HTC M8 running Lollypop.

    Recently, one of my most-used apps got an update that is horrible, it completely changed the UI for the worst, is buggy, and removes many features. I couldn't stand it and downgraded back to the previous version.

    Problem is, now the update appears in Google Play, and if I hit "Update All" it will try to update it again. Is there any to exclude just this one app from the Update All button, and allow all my other apps to keep getting updated?

    Note that I am NOT talking about Auto-Update, which every single attempt to Google about this brought up. I am talking about manually being able to hit Update All but excluding specific apps from being updated that way.

    Nope. Sometimes you can 'trick' it by hitting the Update button and quickly hitting Cancel (or hitting the Update All button and then just cancelling the app you don't want). But no way to exclude that.

    From what I have seen and tried (I wanted to do something similar) it isn't possible.

    Go to the app in the Play Store. Find the 3-dot menu in top right corner. Tap it, then uncheck Auto-update. It will still show up in the update list. If you tap Update All, it will ask permission on that app, and you can decline.

    To my knowledge only apps that ask for different permissions than the currently installed version ask you for permission to update, even with the Auto-Update off (which, if I'm not mistaken, would only mean that the apps update on their own).
