Update Your Apps from Play Store and Galaxy Apps

Occasionally, app updates become available to fix bugs, make improvements, or just give a general tune-up so apps can run at their best. Learn how to keep your apps updated for optimal performance. And don't worry about keeping track of updates for every single app; you can also turn on auto-updates.

Update Galaxy Apps

Galaxy Apps has exclusive content made just for Samsung devices. You will need to update these apps separately from your Play Store apps.

Open Galaxy Apps, and then touch More Options > My apps. Touch Update, and then touch UPDATE ALL.

Note: To update individual apps, touch the Update icon next to the app you want to update.

Turn On Auto Updates in Galaxy Apps

When you set apps to update automatically, you won't have to give it a second thought. Follow these steps to turn on Auto Updates in Galaxy Apps:

Open Galaxy Apps, and then touch More Options. Touch Settings and then touch Auto update apps. Select your desired setting.

Update Play Store Apps

The Play Store is like the supermarket of apps; you can find all apps developed and published through Google.

Open the Play Store, and then touch Menu or swipe right from the left side of the screen. Touch My apps & games, and then touch UPDATE ALL.

Note: To update individual apps, touch UPDATE next to the app you want to update.

Turn On Auto Update in Play Store

Let the Play Store take care of updates automatically so you don't have to worry about it.
