Is it a step back in the Play Store
According to the resulting screenshot, Google is taking a step back to remove the update notifications of the app store Play Store.
Google removed the Play Store’s app update notifications earlier this year. After this change was criticized by many users, a third party application that brought back notifications was released on the Play Store. Now, Google may be considering changing its mind.
On the screenshots that Android Police has received, notifications that updates are installed appear in the notification area. It is stated that the function appeared on a Pixel 3a with Android 11 beta, in Play Store version 20.7.16-all.
The function does not come back when you install the latest version of the Play Store, so the change may be made through the server. It is not yet clear whether the company has brought back Play Store notifications, or whether it’s a mistake. We will have to wait a few days or a few weeks for the situation to become clear.
