Smartphone manufacturers have stubbornly insisted on launching their own app stores. That’s precisely why you’ll find the Galaxy Apps Store on Samsung handset. Realistically, though, you can get more than what you need on the Google Play Store, which is home to over 2 million distinct apps based on early 2016 statistics. Although the Samsung Galaxy App Store sometimes offers useful stuff, it’s far from perfect. In fact, some owners have complained about aggressive promotions and intrusive notifications that affect user experience in a negative way.

If you just recently bought the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy Edge, the Galaxy Note 5 or any other earlier device from Samsung, you expect a premium user experience. Unwanted promotions and notifications coming from the Galaxy App Store can be detrimental to this. The good news, however, is that you can easily turn off these notifications by following a number of simple steps.

  1. To get started, turn on the Samsung Galaxy Apps store app on your smartphone.
  2. Hit on the ‘More’ button so as to access ‘Settings’ menu located in the upper-right section of your device screen.
  3. This is the last step. Tap to disable the toggle next to ‘Push notification’. This effectively makes sure that no push notifications from the Google Apps store app bother you.

Additionally, if you wish to disable all notifications for the Galaxy Apps store, you just have to turn off update notifications from the application’s ‘Settings’ screen. However, you should be aware that if you disable this option, you might be required to apply manual software updates for Galaxy Apps Store in future so that you can use the app properly.

Galaxy Apps store can be a gateway to great stuff. Samsung wants to distance itself from the competition and to stay relevant, makes sure that it delivers helpful content that smartphone users enjoy consuming. However, if you find that the app’s notifications are bothering you, you can do just fine disabling them. After all, the majority of the apps and tools loaded into any Android smartphone around the world comes from Google Play Store.
