For example I love this racing game I have. I don't want want it to be damaged by a new update so I went to Google store settings and installed and I saw the game and I disabled the auto matic update option what if I change my mind and i want to update it do I just go to Google store and put a check on the box that says auto matic update and if I do disable auto update where should I look to update if I change my mind

Hey if I turn an app off manually through Google store would I be able to update it when I want couse maybe I'll encounter a problem? And the new update will fix it

I don't want to update some game cause I don't want to damage the game what should I do?

It's not clear from the instructions how to "Tap and check the 'Allow automatic updating.' ” I spent a long time scrolling through my list of installed apps, hoping to find the one I did not want to automatically update.  AFTER step 4, you need to find the App in the Google Play Store. Then tap the "settings" button on your phone. From that settings menu you will have the option to enable/disable automatic updates. This menu does not appear until you are on the App page in the store. Hope this helps.

For that specific game, search the game name in Google Play Store, tap to open it, and then simply tap "Update"

it starts updating your game to the latest version

Hi

you need to go to your installed apps list on Google Play (its icon is located on the top menu), and then see the list of available updates.

Tap each application you would like to update and then tap on "Update",
