Samsung has introduced a Galaxy Store that is truly optimized for use with one hand. The feature is available for early beta testers of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series running One UI 4 Beta 3 in certain regions. The whole app interface has been reduced to a minimal look, so the user can simply focus on the functions or actions.
Despite the fact that in-app ads are still there and bothering a lot of users, Samsung continues to push fullscreen or banner ads in the Galaxy Store app. A few users have also reported receiving the “A new Galaxy Store update is available” notification but the update never came. Samsung’s Galaxy Store app is available in One UI 4 Beta 3 with version 126.96.36.199.
In the meantime, interested users can manually download the new optimized Galaxy Store APK file from this link to their Samsung devices. However, in some scenarios, the loading animations are a little laggy, but this can be easily fixed in the upcoming updates.
