How to Uninstall Software updates only?

Mar 23, 2018 6:09AM PDT

I am using Samsung Galaxy J5. My phone internal apps are updated automatically and there is a no option for uninstalling updates only to restore the previous version. There is any other option to uninstall updates only??

I have yet to see Android offer a way to restore to a previous version. For INTERNAL apps it's pretty much all or nothing. That is, I see that I can disable the app and uninstall updates but nothing has ever been offered to control which version to roll back to.

There are a lot of reasons why this is and would take too many paragraphs to cover why. Let's just say that you may want to try a replacement app for the apps you don't like.

Okay. Because It's already near to end of the internal memory. So that. Thank you for your response.

There are long to too long discussions. In recent years I find that most Androids let me disable the app and eject/remove updates.

As to internal space, one has to be a ninja to battle this. This is partly why if the owner is not into Android I move my internal space requirement to 16GB and higher.
