I'm about to get a Mi Box (come on Mr Courier!). I believe that when I first set up the Box and sign in with my Google account, it will attempt to add all the apps I had for past Android phones, onto the Box. Thing is, I'm no longer an Android phone user. How can I delete the apps from the Play Store so that they don't all install on the Mi Box? Or do I have to let them install (if there's enough space!) and delete them from the Box after set up?

 

 

 

Thanks for any advice.

It will give you the option of of restoring a previous device and selecting which apps to install from it or setting it up as a fresh one. No need to worry about them installing automatically.

Or if you log into your Google account on a computer and go to the play store there are many more options for the apps listed including removing them.

I already looked into this before posting, but for each of the apps under the "My Apps" section on the play store there only appears to be an "Installed" button. No sign of any "X marks the delete button
(spot)" on any of these apps.

Not even under library? That's where they show up on mine.
