  1. Use the  + I keyboard shortcut to bring the Settings menu, then click Change PC settings.
  2. on PC settings, navigate to Devices and at the bottom switch ON the last option “Download over metered connections”.

That’s all there is to it. Now next time you are in an airport or in the park using your Internet, devices software will not be part of your data usage.
