Default Stop Google Play Updates

I have 2 phones and 2 tablets all of them set to not auto update. Yet once again this AM I'm on the train and my damn phone updates about 10 different apps. I'm in the middle of playing a game which slows to a crawl while Google takes over my device. Finally get home and start my tablet and guess what the sob starts updating. I'm beyond frustrated with this so if anyone has a 100% guaranteed way of stopping this behavior it would be greatly appreciated

No need of sorry bro,I am really irritated with this prob.The main prob is that is consumes data and cause data charges.Hope that someone will help us out.

each app has an auto update option in its settings, you may want to check there and see if its still set to auto update, even with the main settings turned off.
if thats the case, you would have to manually turn them all off.

Thanks for the tip but I still cannot for the life of me stop auto update. My second phone hasn't been used for about 5 days so I turned it on today. I have both data and wifi off on it. I go in and double check everything is set to not update. Turn wifi on and within 1 minute its updating 9 apps

If it was only happening on one device I would suspect that its an isolated case but all 4 can't have the same issue. I tried freezing the play store function and my tablet started doing some very strange things. I'm relatively new to android (8 months) and the only problems I've ever had were all related to the damn play store. In case you haven't figured it out I REALLY hate the play store with a passion.

Anyone know how to contact google direct via phone?

I was going to suggest freezing the play app, but didn't because I thought it would cause issues.
Alternatively, you could see if the amazon store has all your apps. If so, delete the play store and see if amazon can be controlled to do what you want.
