How To Make Android Apps Update On Wi-Fi Only

I while ago I wrote an article on forcing Android apps to only use Wi-Fi, but what if you want your Android apps to be useable anywhere, but only update over Wi-Fi? To make Android apps only update on Wi-Fi, do the following:

  1. Click on Settings
  2. Click on Data Usage
  3. Select the app you want to only use Wi-Fi (to stop apps updating over 3G / 4G and only use Wi-Fi, select the Google Play app)
  4. Click on View app settings, then Update over Wi-Fi only

The app should now only update over Wi-Fi and not use the 3G connection for updates. You should however, still be able to use the app over 3G.
