    So recently this started happening; I would update an app through Google play, and it will automatically open up. It's annoying when you're updating multiple apps, then in the middle of texting someone, the app that updated, opens up and takes you out the text app. Only to exit out the app, continue texting then seconds later a different app that's finished updating, also opens up. Is there a way to disable this? Using the Note 4 (5.1.1)

    Yes, go into PlayStore and turn off AutoUpdate.
    I never allow an app to update Automatically.

    that is a good way to break things.....
    the only reason to update an app is to fix something that is broken.... not just change it because the kid developer decided to reformat one of the display screens.

    I quit that many years ago.
