Google Play Store has now stopped showing notifications for updated apps. This came to light in the end of 2019 when users started noticing that the Play Store was sending fewer notifications.

Some users considered the lack of notifications as a temporary bug but it turned out that this was a planned initiative and was recently confirmed by Google representatives, GSMArena reported on Wednesday.


Apparently this development has been live since November for some users on version 17.4 of the Play Store.

In our own test on version 18.3.13 we did not receive any notifications following several app updates. This was done through the manual update route and from what it seems the same applies to users who have auto-updates turned on, the report added.

The Hindu calendar is traditionally used in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia

The gregorian calendar has been adopted worldwide for the convenience of worldwide communications. There remain numerous lunisolar calendars that are followed in different parts of the world. The Hindu calendar is one of the various lunisolar calendars that is traditionally used in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, with further regional variations for social and Hindu religious purposes. It is used to determine the dates of Hindu festivals and when to observe the fasts.

The Hindu Calendar is based upon the motion of the moon. Each lunar year comprises twelve months. The lunar year comprises 354 days, compared to 365 ¼ days of the Gregorian calendar, which is based on the solar system i.e. the number of days earth takes to complete one revolution around the sun. Whereas in a lunar calendar a lunar month, is the time required for the moon to orbit once around the earth and pass through its complete cycle of phases. These months are formulated in accordance with the successive entrances of the sun into the 12 Hindu rashis or the signs of the zodiac derived from the 12 constellations marking the path of the sun.
