If you want to download and install apps from the Google Play Store while on a mobile data connection, here’s what you need to do:
Open the Google Play Store on your device.
Expand the ‘Settings’ menu.
Tap ‘Auto-update apps’ and select ‘Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only’.
This will ensure that apps won’t automatically update over your mobile data connection.
- Make sure the ‘Download over Wi-Fi Only’ setting is turned on. This can be found under the ‘General’ tab in the ‘Settings’ menu.
Now apps won’t download unless you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Additionally, you can check the ‘Allow app downloads’ option in the same menu. This ensures that apps won’t be downloaded while you’re using mobile data.
- The next time you’re on a Wi-Fi network and want to download an app from the Google Play Store, make sure the ‘Allow app downloads’ option is turned on.
This will ensure that all downloaded apps use the Wi-Fi connection, instead of your mobile data connection.
Hope this helps. Feel free to reach out if you have any further queries.
