That being said, let’s tell you about the major new features shipping with Endless OS 3.4.

This release has gained the functionality of detecting what kind of internet connection one is running; it’ll let you make sure that your system doesn’t try to suck tons of data on a limited data connection. In case Endless isn’t able to detect the type of connection, there’s a toggle to mark it manually.

You’ll also be able to schedule the updates to decide a certain time or disable the updates altogether. The OS updates are also shown in the App Center to give you a better control.
