Is there any benefit to setting a channel for wifi as opposed to just auto?

I have the app on my phone that shows me what the best channel to set it on but I have always left mine on Auto.

Ideally you'd set it to the least congested channel. If auto just scans for existing wifi/other radio waves of the same bandwidth and then selects the least used channel then there shouldn't be any difference.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

I'm not sure if its a huge issue anymore. I remember having to change the channel to 11 to get my Wii connected. I think thats the only time i've ever had to change it.
