Overview

Galaxy Store is an app store designed specifically for Galaxy device and watch apps. It provides users in over 180 countries with apps optimized for Galaxy devices and watches. Users who have just purchased their first watches can visit Galaxy Store, download the apps they want, and customize their new devices. But it's not just for new users. Long-time Galaxy watch users also frequently check Galaxy Store for new apps to download.

Galaxy Store provides a channel where a watch device can be synced with a Samsung or non-Samsung device. The scope of the support available in each store channel may differ between countries and between paid apps and free apps.

Many developers provide a wide range of apps on Galaxy Store, with their apps that add value to watch devices. You too can join them on Galaxy Store, presenting watch device users with apps they will love.

Categories

Galaxy Store has a wide variety of useful apps in categories including Watch faces, Health and fitness, Lifestyle, and Entertainment. The Watch facees category has a large number of apps, and has proven to be popular among Galaxy Store users. The Watch faces category has its own intuitive UI style, which distinguishes it from other categories and makes it user-friendly.

Note: The structure, menus, and UI of the store may vary depending on the type of watch device with which the user connected to the store and the store version used.

When you register your apps on Seller Portal, you can select up to two categories, which help users find the apps they want. Then, you can select up to two subcategories under the Watch face category. In the menu for each category, you can see which apps are the most popular in that category (free, paid, and new apps are listed separately). Rankings are determined by various factors, including the number of downloads, revenue, and user ratings.

Main Features

Featured page

Galaxy Store includes the Featured page, where users can view selected apps and get recommendations. This page can promote your apps, providing you with opportunities for greater profits and giving users a chance to try out apps.

The Featured page is regularly updated by our editor and displays popular apps in each category, as well as the best of the newly registered apps in Galaxy Store.

The Featured page consists of banner promotions, which display a single app in a banner, and App 3+, which displays three or more apps based around a similar theme.

Companion App Support

Samsung Watch apps can be broadly categorized into two types of apps: companion-type watch apps that need to be synced with a smartphone, and standalone watch apps that can function on their own. For user convenience, Galaxy Store allows users to simultaneously install or uninstall multiple companion-type apps that are registered on Galaxy Store, even if they are smartphone apps that need to be synced. Note: This feature can be used in the store for Samsung mobile devices and in the store on watch devices.
