Hello A7mad-Z, the Playstation 4 console has already implemented a pause feature for downloads. If you’d like to pause a download you may do so via the notifications – > downloads and push X on a download to pause it. Playstation downloads updates and games in the background for the convenience of being able to enjoy your games as soon as possible.

Peoplem want something that is automatic. How about a tick box: “Pause all downloads when playing online” = Yes.

I think the PS4 already pauses the downloads when you’re playing something.
