Google's suddenly decided to start auto-updating my entire app collection after I specified over a year and a half ago to never, ever do this. I had to shut off Play Services to stop it, but now it looks like I have to turn it back on in order to access the option to turn off auto-updating again. In other words, a large chunk of my apps would have to updated in order to turn off said auto-updating.
I can't allow the updating because my S5 has very little internal storage remaining, and also because I could lose crucial data and functionality in some of the apps I rely on. But I also need an Android market that won't infect the device, so sideloading isn't an option for me by any means.
Is there ANY way to shut off auto-updating for my Google account without going through the Google Play app or turning on Play Services? I already tried the website; I didn't see the option anywhere, unless I missed it.
