Hello! Would there be anyway to move the apps on the Galaxy Store to a separate section of the Google Play Store? Or to upload the Galaxy Store apps there as well? It's a been a bit confusing in figuring out which App Store I should use to update my apps.

Often times, I have to jump between stores to keep my apps updated and it would be nice to just have a one-stop for apps. Thank you for your time!

In my main settings, I have a choice, Samsung messages or Google messages. Being that I've been a fan of Google, I opted for Google messages. Now all I get is Gmail and all kinds of apps from the Google store. I clicked on Samsung messages at first and I got " installed but disabled". That was it for me. my sister sent me a text with a picture of her new dog. Would I have received it had I chosen Samsung? I don't know and don't want to take a chance. I have a Samsung phone with a Google account.

The Galaxy Store is owned by Samsung. The Google Play store is owned by Google. There is no way to combine the 2.

No, I get that! I'm more so along the lines that it doesn't make sense to have two separate app stores, when Samsung apps could (unless its law related) be loaded to the Play Store as well. Why have two apps doing the same job?

Seeing this Epic vs Google & Apple case, enlightened me on how bad this could be. I take back my original post.
