    How to prevent Gmail app on Android phone from downloading attachments by itself while connecting to Wi-Fi network?

    Whenever I connect my android phone with Wi-Fi network, the Gmail app will download attachments automatically without my prompt. This will affect the download speed if I am trying to download games from Play Store. Is there any way available to stop this?

    Get into the app drawer in your phone and tap over the ‘Gmail’ app. When the app gets opened, hit the menu key in your phone. This will bring up a set of options on the screen in the form of list. Go through that list and tap the ‘Settings’ option. This will redirect you to the ‘Settings’ page from which select the e-mail account for which you want to stop automatic downloading. Scroll down to the bottom part of the ‘Settings’ page and find out the ‘Download attachments’ option. Tap on the check box appears next to this option until the tick mark gets disappeared from it. The changes will be saved automatically once you quit the settings.
