Note before changes in Settings:

If you Android phone having no insert Sim card  OR not updated to version 5, then you will not see the 2nd option to updates using data connection   The best option is always to choose to do not to self-updates apps. This will allow you to not update if there is unwanted application OR stock application in your phone. You may also have the choice to use  Wi-Fi only because it is good to be always having application to the latest version to get full feature of the App.

  • Choosing Do not an option will not update any app unless you manually choose to update. You can do it manually from the Google Play my applications.

  • Auto update app at any time will do an automatic update whenever your phone is connected to the internet. No matter if it is Wifi OR mobile data. This may increase your data charges from a mobile network provider.

  • Auto update with  Wi-Fi only will only update all application if connected to the Wifi connection.

The best option is to Do not automatically update in case if your phone having the stock app and you don’t want them to be in the latest version. If you don’t have an unwanted app on your phone, then I will prefer the best option is to select updating with Wi-Fi only.

Depend on user choice and sources, you may choose to select update over data connection if your network provider allowing unlimited data usage where you will not be required to disable Auto updating from Play Store settings in Android device.
