Where do I find do not auto update languages?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

To find the “do not auto update” option for languages on your device, follow these steps:

1. Open the settings on your device. You can usually find the settings app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and selecting the gear icon.

2. In the settings menu, look for the “Language & input” or “Language & keyboard” option. Tap on it to access the language and input settings.

3. Within the language and input settings, you should see an option for “Google Voice Typing” or “Virtual Keyboard.” Tap on it to proceed.

4. Look for the “Offline speech recognition” or “Offline voice recognition” option. This is where you can manage the downloaded languages for offline use.

5. Tap on the “Offline speech recognition” option to view the available downloaded languages.

6. Here, you will see a list of languages that you have downloaded for offline speech recognition. To stop auto-updating, tap on each language one by one.

7. For each language, you should see an option to “Stop auto-update.” Tap on it to disable the automatic language updates.

8. Repeat this process for all the languages listed to ensure that none of them will auto-update in the future.

Additionally, you may want to check if there is an option to disable auto-updates for the Google app itself. This can vary depending on your device and Android version, but you can usually find it in the Google Play Store settings. Open the Play Store app, tap on the menu icon (usually three horizontal lines) in the top-left corner, go to “Settings,” and look for the “Auto-update apps” option. Set it to “Do not auto-update” if available.

By following these steps, you should be able to find and disable the auto-update option for languages used in offline speech recognition on your device.
