    I never over the "other" app store but always get messages saying to update Internet or Phone or Messaging or whatever so they do make it somewhat user friendly.

    more bloatware - two app stores - two this etc. I don't mind the proposition (sale) but have the professionalism to handle rejection - I don't want Bixby - I don't want your invasive apps - I enjoy your hardware - just stop it already
    Use Package Disabler Pro to disable bloatware including Bixby.

    I like the internet and music apps. The music app is what I settled on last year after trying out many different music apps when got my S7 Edge.
    Yea the Samsung internet with ad blocker is the smoothest web experience you'll find on android

    I think most people just don't care as long as they can text and use Facebook.

    I use the Samsung edge panel, internet launcher, Samsung Pay, Messenger and camera app. And I suspect more people use all of those than not.
    You're right. Now that I think about it I use Samsung apps that I don't think of as Samsung. Plus my watch is all Samsung.

    i love updates
    Superlative comment.  ;^>

    Actually, thanks to everyone for the tip. Generally speaking I don't use the Samsung apps all that much, but almost every time I would use one I would see that it has an update available, so I was looking for a way to update them all at once and found this thread. And you're right … I was one of the 90% who don't give the Galaxy App store its due, because after reading this thread I fired up Galaxy Apps, hit the 3-dot menu, and lo and behold, there's a "⑪" next to "My Apps"… which is to say, eleven apps need updating ("ah, so that's how you update them all at once", lol ).

    Good thread, thx everyone, and I guess you could say I'm a Galaxy App store convert.👍🏻

    In the App drawer. There may be a folder there for Samsung apps.

    Anyway, Samsung App Store exists because it's allowed in countries where Google isn't.. Plus I love the freebies you get when installing games from it. You get a lot of in game items you'd otherwise pay a lot of money for. Lol.

    I dont have it...although its possible I deleted it when getting rid of bloatware when I first bought the phone.

    I dowloaded an app from the app stroe called Samsung+...but I dotn see anything in it regarding updating apps. Couldnt find anything lese in the app store that seemed to fit the bill.

    What is the exact name of the app/where can I find it?

    People just update their Play Store apps because their Play Store apps update automatically. Most people don't even know the Galaxy app store exists, never mind know they should be going in to update it. I don't blame users at all for that... that's all on Samsung. They can update their dialer, messaging app, browsers... ALL can be done via the Play Store like all the other apps on the phone.

    Why do they have an app store in the first place? What's the point, other than to confuse less nuanced mobile users? They aren't going to replace Google, that's for sure.
    This. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Galaxy App Store is pointless and a nuisance
