In this simple guide we will explain how you can check for updates and actually update native apps on your Galaxy device without logging in to Galaxy Store and without having Samsung account.
The only “but” is that you have to open Samsung apps one by one and check each of them for available new version.
Update 2022. This option seems to stop working for new versions of Samsung apps. You will be either way taken to the Galaxy Store app.
As I often see, not all Galaxy phone owners agree to create and use Galaxy Store. In most cases they skip logging in to a Samsung account during the initial setup and do not use it later.
But it happens that a little while later the same people start asking on forums “Why aren’t my Samsung apps up to date?” and “How do I update Galaxy app to the latest version”. And here is how.
How to Update My Files or Another Native Samsung App Without Galaxy Store Account
If your device is connected to the Internet and you see the N mark on the menu icon, this means that you have new notifications including available app updates.
- Open the Samsung native app you wish to update or check for available updates.
- Tap on the Menu “three dots” icon:
- Select Settings:
- Scroll down to the bottom and tap on About My Files (About Galaxy Store, About Voice Recorder, etc):
- Tap on Update:
That’s pretty much it! Using the same steps you can keep all Samsung apps up to date. Tell us in the comments if you use Samsung account and what benefits are behind it. Good luck!
