    I don't think I'm imagining things but wondering if anyone notice the same thing...

    I'm sure I downloaded the BitDefender antivirus app as well as Zoom app from the Google App Store. I prefer to download as many apps as I can from one source... Google... and only use Samsung Galaxy Store for apps provided by Samsung. I even have a yearly sub to BitDefender so I had to have gotten it from Google.

    But today I check updates on the Galaxy Store and it shows updates available for my BitDefender and Zoom app! Showed updates for Samsung apps and you can't seem to deselect the Galaxy Store from updating selected apps.... all or nothing. So I let it update.

    But does that mean Samsung how now poached apps I got from Google Play and now linked to their store?? I don't why they do this but not happy about it.

    Yeah, there's some crossbreeding of app updates on occasion. For the most part I only update Samsung apps from the Samsung Store. The funny part is when you can have two versions of the same app from both stores.

    Only apps I downloaded from the galaxy store get updated from there. Almost all of my apps are from the play store or Amazon app store.

    And later that evening after my post... Zoom update available and I installed from the Google Play store.

    So guess the tug-o-war goes back and forth and for now don't really care as long as they don't end up corrupting my app.

    Since it's Samsung I guess I don't care because... they're Samsung. But if it wasn't Samsung and some other third party poaching apps back and forth, I'd be concerned on a security point of view as well as I really want to keep my apps mainly with Google.

    Resistance is futile !

    But yes I've noticed this as well.

    To be honest I just let my phone do its own thing when updating as long as it's from the sanctity of the Playstore / Galaxy Store.

    What's weird is sometimes you can install 2 versions of the app.
