AppNotifier restores Google Play's missing app update & app install notifications.

Unhappy with Google's removal of the Play Store's app update notifications? Wish you had them back? Don't worry, AppNotifier's got you covered.

• Show a notification each time an app is newly installed, or updated, on your device
• Choose whether notifications are shown for apps from Google Play, or sideloaded apps

• The app does not detect when apps are in the middle of installing, so there will be a short delay between when an app downloads and when the install or update notifications appear.
• Notifications are generated using data from the apps on your device, not the Play Store itself. So if an app's name differs between the Play Store listing and the actual app on your device, the latter will be used.

NOTE: There are certain situations where the Play Store will still show an app installation notification, such as when installing an app remotely via the Google Play website. To avoid duplicate notifications, you may want to disable the Play Store's notification channel for "Updated apps" inside the Android system settings.

App ChangeLog

  • New in 1.2.2:
  • * Bug fixes for Android 5.x and 6.x
  • * Removed unneccessary "Ignore battery optimizations" option
  • * Polish and Korean translations

Google Play Reviews

  1. Abed Omran-avatar

    Thank you for this. Everyone seems hung up on app updates, but I just wanted notifications for new installations brought back. This accomplished that. One suggestion I have is the option to open the notification to the Play store page for that app instead of the app itself. If I'm remembering correctly, that's how the Play store notifications worked, though it's been so long now I may be misremembering...

  2. ReVerbIsSuperb-avatar

    app notifier apk Brings back much needed functionality of the "Android Experience" as a result of unfortunate recent changes within the Play Store. The app is clean, simple, ad-free, open-source, and executes its created purpose beautifully. Thank you!

    Works on my Pixel 4 but not my other devices for some reason, even with battery optimisation ignored. Edit: the problem was I turned off all notifications after getting the foreground service one after installation. All fixed now!

    Works like a charm. Took a little playing around to get rid of the static drawer notification, but figured it out. Thanks for taking the time to bring this feature back to my device.

  5. NäRT STäS-avatar

    It works 👌🏻 but only when I get in the app I reseve the notifications .. I tried to ignore the app from battery optimization and keep it in background always and still the same problem💔 however thank you so much for creating this app ❤️

  6. Nikolay Pavlov-avatar

    Great and to-the-point little utility. Don't know why Google decided to drop this feature, should have made it an option. Probably so developers like this can shine :)

  7. Nick Greaves-avatar

    This does what it says. It also notifies "stealth" updates such as Google Play Services, which is useful. It would be good if the enhanced notification could include (beta) where relevant.

  8. Thor Lancaster-avatar

    It'd be nice if I didn't have to go into settings to close the persistent notification, but after that, everything is working great. I barely even realize it's installed.

  9. James Yau-avatar

    Thank you for bringing these notifications back, Google had absolutely no reason to remove these. Works instantly without any issues.

  10. Johnathon Weare-avatar

    Good. A crash was quickly fixed (-1+1). "Enhanced"should continue to show extra details upon multiple updates.

  11. Gilad Berezetsky-avatar

    I expected it to notify me about new updates for apk installations but it just reports about updates when YOU manually update apk installations or when Google's Play Store updates an application. The problem is that Google's Store already does that. Consequently, the app is useless.

  12. Steve W-avatar

    Does what it says. I like it, nice, simple and effective.

    Really nice work.appreciable work of the best apps used so far

  14. Pierrick Stz-avatar

    Unfortunately this doesn't work on P30 Pro. Appreciate the effort and idea though, and I am happy this helps other people to get their notifications back.

  15. dor wattenberg-avatar

    Thank you so much for that app! Google decision was such a weird thing,and good that you brought it back.

    Works awesome, thanks to the dev. Funny how google removed such a simple yet basic and useful function.

  17. Joshua Wicks-avatar

    This app is the greatest thing that's happened to 2020. It was like reconnecting with a childhood friend after 20 years. It's the smallest things that make the biggest difference.

  18. Dave Raymond-avatar

    Nougat: Apps did have updates waiting, but no notifications from this app. I did tell it to "Ignore Battery Optimizations".

  19. Travis-avatar

    Fantastic app, have been missing the notifications for updates since they removed it, Ridiculous decision on there part, regardless, Thank you so much!!

  20. Ian Simiyu-avatar

    Never knew I'd come to need such an app, but so glad to have found one. Has one job, does it perfectly. Thank you.

  21. Josh Farley-avatar

    Great app! Not sure why Google ever removed these notifications it was really stupid on their part.

  22. David Fleiss-avatar

    Great app. Restores a functionality that should never have been removed.

  23. Jakub Grzeszkowiak-avatar

    Jakub Grzeszkowiak


    When community fixes something that devs intentionally removed for no reason. Great app but the way.

  24. Matthew Dye-avatar

    Yay for the latest version! Ghost updates were really annoying.

  25. Brian Aniceto-avatar

    The new update has been crashing frequently as said in my phone :(

  26. Nathan Davies-avatar

    Good. Brings back notifications albeit they are about 10 seconds delayed.

  27. JOE NASR-avatar

    If you're an app freak.. u need these notifications. I wish they add the added info and log though.

  28. Fernando Viñan-Cano-avatar

    Love how this finally shows me when the Store app itself gets updated. Nice job.

  29. Steven Cornea-avatar

    This is a great app, I love being able to see the version number of what was installed

  30. BlueBob24-avatar

    Very good app, but when I press the notification can you please make it so it opens the app that I installed/updated

  31. Richard Haughn-avatar

    This is absolutely super needed because people want to know if their app is installed okay.

  32. Pranav Pal-avatar

    After the latest update, the app works and does the job!

  36. Ran Dom-avatar

    MFW you need a separate app for a feature that Googl™ decided to remove. Cheers dev(s).

  37. ThoughtRug 144-avatar

    Thank you for restoring the Google Play updates and install notifications

  38. Frank Rodrigo-avatar

    All it's doing is asking for a review. Installed it 10 minutes ago. And now it won't post

  39. Freddy Kruger-avatar

    This literally hasn't notified me of any updates that were available 😏 The app does not notify when apps are updated either 😑

  40. Brian Cornea-avatar

    Great work. Is an app for WearOS coming soon? I'd love to see internal updates for it. Keep up the great work.

  41. Maks Godek-avatar

    Just excellent and seamless
