Samsung ‘Galaxy Store’ replaces ‘Galaxy Apps,’ gets One UI redesign

It’s going to be a busy week for Samsung, but the company’s software has been going through a lot of changes for the past couple of months. As One UI and Android Pie continue rolling out to the Galaxy S9 and Note 9, the company is now updating its own app store to match. Along with that, the new One UI-redesign Galaxy Apps store is also getting renamed to the Galaxy Store.

‘Samsung Apps’ gets new ‘Galaxy Apps’ rebrand, performance improvements

Galaxy Apps

Samsung’s app store, previously called “Samsung Apps,” was announced to be getting a rebrand to be “Samsung Galaxy Apps” right around the same time as the release of the first Tizen-based smartphone. That change happened on the web side on July 1st, but is today being pushed to the smartphone side as well (via Sammy Hub).

The update not only changes the name of the service to “GALAXY Apps”, but packs a few additional performance updates as well. Notably, the interface of the store is flatter, more streamlined, and reportedly a bit more responsive during use.

If you want to grab this update, it will be pushing automatically to users over the next few days. But if you’re an avid Galaxy Apps user and especially eager to get the new design, you can go to the Version Info menu and update manually.
