The dialogue box says, “This app is very large. To avoid potential delays or extra data usage charges, use Wi-Fi only.” All Google Play Store apps already has an option to use only WiFi for auto-updates. This feature will allow users to select a new option, to set ‘Download using Wi-Fi only’ as default. If this option is not selected, then the dialogue box will show and there will be two options – Download Now and Wait for WiFi. This warning will show only if you are trying to download a file larger than 100MB. The ‘Beta’ warning is clearly visible in the screenshot, and this new feature only available for few users. Hopefully Google will launch this new feature for every android device soon.
Google recently added new feature like SD card support and WiFi only mode for Google Maps. This feature will allow users to use Google Maps completely offline, even without WiFi.
