Turn off HockeyApp's new app update check

I use HockeyApp to distribute my app to my devices. When I open the app on my phone, and there’s an update available, I’m instructed to download the latest, as expected. How do I turn off this update notification, so that I can upload it to the Play Store, since such in-app update is a violation of Google Play’s policy?

I know there’s the option of hockeyApp.checkHockeyAppUpdates() (which turns it on), but is there one that turns it off?


Can anyone help out please???
