Android’s core apps have the advantage of being updated at regular intervals of time and are independent of major os updates. Before users were getting all notification regarding updated apps but from some time they were having a lack of notification, some users considered it as a temporary bug but later they come to know that this was a planned initiative and this development has been live since November for some users on version 17.4 of the play store, which was recently confirmed by Google representatives.
When we heard about this we just tasted it on our own level on version 18.3.13 and as users claimed, we got the same result, we did not receive any notification after several app updates. This was done through the manual update route and from what it seems the same applies to users who have auto-update turned on. According to many users, this is a good step taken by google play store but according to many users this is not done, a notification should be given for updated apps. What do you feel about this change, should google give all controls over the notifications to users for updated apps?
