Hey, 

@FBOL

I have automatically update turned off for both stores. I also have app update notifications turned off for both stores. I check manually once a day. Just a personal preference so if the phone suddenly has issues after an app update I'll at least know which ones to look at. Play store shows a temporary list of the most recently updated apps. Galaxy store doesn't provide any information on what has been updated. It does provide in app notifications for some but not all of the Samsung apps. This morning galaxy store had updates for Bixby and text to speech. I have them them both set to update using Wi-Fi only. 

Best regards, 

CLF

Make sure you check for app updates on the Play Store daily. Any updates installed through there will make the update notification on the Galaxy Store disappear once the app update is installed.
