Google Play Stops Showing Notifications for Apps Having Been Updated

Google Play Stops Showing Notifications for Apps Having Been Updated:

Google Play Store has now stopped showing notifications for updated apps. This came to light in the end of 2019 when users started noticing that the Play Store was sending fewer notifications. Some users considered the lack of notifications as a temporary bug.

However, it turned out that this was a planned initiative and was recently confirmed by Google representatives, Android Police reported on Tuesday. Apparently this development has been live since November for some users on version 17.4 of the Play Store.

GSMArena reports that its test on version 18.3.13 we did not receive any notifications following several app updates. This was done through the manual update route and from what it seems the same applies to users who have auto-updates turned on, the report added.

For users who have the auto-update feature turned on, the Play Store would typically update a handful of apps that had pending updates whenever you plugged into a charger.

This notification didn’t serve much of a purpose beyond the partial list, but it was handy to have so you could expect changes of some sort, according to 9to5Google.
