Latest version of Google Play allows choosing applications that you wish to auto update when a new version is released on the Google Play market. In the past there were only two options; set auto update for all applications or for none. This new feature is a good change, if you were forced to disable auto updates on your favorite applications because you preferred not to receive auto updates on certain other applications.
